Håkan Hardenberger has earned a reputation of breaking new ground for the trumpet, commissioning works from the worlds foremost composers. On this disc, he shows a different side to himself in arrangements of his favourite songs and film themes. Hardenberger is joined by his long-standing collaborators: the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the pianist Roland Pöntinen, who also has orchestrated several of the arrangements.
