  • I am coming to hear the sound of the Baroque trumpet played by a
    master. About 50 years ago I went to a concert at the Albert Hall
    which included the second Brandenburg.Imagine how I felt when I
    read the programme and discovered that the trumpet part was to be
    played on a clarinet due the difficulty of the music. So the concert on
    1st Jan. will be very special .
