Concerto in D (Michael Haydn) - I. Adagio
  • Classical music Andrew Bishop, Trumpet "Live in Concert" featuring Genevieve Bishop, Piano Blanka Bednarz, Violin Presser Hall Auditorium Bethany College November 20, 2001 While I certainly concede that I am no pianist to speak of, you might notice on the program below that I performed a Chopin Nocturne on piano before the Michael Haydn concerto. I did this for two reasons: 1. I wanted to pretend I was a somewhat well-rounded musician, and 2. I needed a chop break after a taxing piece on B-flat and C trumpet respectively. Not too many trumpeters have the audacity to perform this concerto live, let alone as just one piece on a very demanding full recital. As most of you trumpet folk know, in the first movement this concerto features the highest note ever composed for the classical trumpet: the high A6, the 24th partial on the natural D trumpet. I, of course, love to push the envelope -- for better or for worse -- I thought I'd scale up to it for a second time in a cadenza. I saw another guy upload a partial video of himself performing this, and he listed his equipment for all the trumpet tech-heads. I suppose I'll do the same: Schilke P5-4, and a regular old Bach 7E mouthpiece.
