A very important release for me, because it presents – for the first time – Reinhold Friedrich, an excellent soloist, who is supported by congenial partners: Hannes Läubin (trumpet), Gregory Ahss (solo violin), Munich Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Martín Baeza-Rubio. Secondly, there are four special compositions of different character, – the double concerto VIVALDISSIMO with two trumpets chasing each other in a rush of sound, the double concerto ALTAI – TRACES FOR INFINITY with my Far Eastern longing (Central Asia, Siberia, China…) for an archaic world. ) for an archaic world, L’ANGELICA FARFALLA with “my” gems of early music, and finally IKARUS – DESIRE FOR THE LIGHT as an epic pictorial arc on the themes of “near-death experiences” and afterlife research, which have fascinated me for a long time. Thirdly, the “trumpet” was the first instrument of my musical education and still means a familiar timbre to me today.

Preface by the composer: The trumpet can be traced back for almost 4000 years in many cultures and more than any other musical instrument it is surrounded by the aura of something special: it was the signal giver at ritual, religious, military or royal state occasions. Not from wood or animal horn, but of metal hardened by fire whether bronze, silver or even gold it was manufactured already early. The sound of the trumpets captivated people already in Egyptian death cults, in temple rituals not only in Tibet, in warlike occasions and also in the biblical reports of the beginnings (in the books of Moses) as well as the concluding apocalypse and end-time revelation. When there the seventh seal is opened and seven angels give their signals, then this is connected with elementary shocks: with hail, fire, blood, – mountains of fire or stars of the universe fall into the oceans.

The sound of the trumpet is still ambivalent today: even where it presents itself as sweet, it always resonates with a near-death shaking that can also become infernal and violent at any time. This sound remains connected with cosmic, divine or at least princely royal attitude.
