Product Description

Product Description

From the age of 12, when he was dubbed “The Paganini of the trumpet” by the Finnish press after a performance at the Korsholm Festival, Russian-born Sergei Nakariakov has developed a unique musical voice, which is much more than a vehicle for astonishing virtuosity. His repertoire includes not only the entire range of original literature for the trumpet but also many fascinating transcriptions. At the same time, he has single-handedly brought the flügelhorn to prominence on the concert platform.
Three of the concertos on this recording were originally written for the bassoon: Mozart’s work was completed in 1774 in Salzburg and is similar in character to the lighthearted divertimentos and serenades that he composed during the same period. Johann Nepomuk Hummel, a student of Mozart, composed his Bassoon Concerto in 1805 but it was not published in his lifetime. Weber composed his concerto for the bassoonist of the Munich Court Orchestra, who premiered it in 1811. Saint-Saëns’s ever-popular first cello concerto was written in the early 1870s, around the time he also composed Carnival of the Animals, the ‘Organ’ Symphony and Samson et Delila. Nakariakov has arranged this virtuosic and expressive work for flügelhorn.
Sergei Nakariakov has performed in the world’s leading concert venues and at many prestigious festivals. His recordings for Teldec have been unanimously well received: “Sergei Nakariakov est un véritable phénomène” (Le Monde de la Musique)
“If there is a problem for Nakariakov, it comes in the form of finding repertoire worthy of his exceptional talent. This comes not just in the form of a supreme technician but his musical instincts […] one cannot praise the playing too highly.” (Gramophone, February 2002)
“The Caruso of the trumpet is what he should be called from now on – someone who literally breathes sound into his instrument himself, the cantilenas interpreted tensely, the phrasing soulfully and with agility” (Musik & Theater)

Sergei Nakariakov plays brilliantly in these concertos he has transcribed himself: by Hummel, Mozart and Weber for trumpet, and the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1 for flugelhorn. All of them sound superb, as the music is full of life and completely takes flight thanks to his blowing which is obviously the result of the most dedicated work throughout his life. The Saint-Saens is particularly interesting, I found, but this may be because I love the piece already. It sounds very good on the flugelhorn which has a most appealing, deeper sound, but does not seem wedded to the cello in the way the Elgar Concerto would. The other works are earlier and generally breezy, while putting Nakariakov's lips through their paces. He is admirably supported by the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra under Saulius Sondeckis.

Sergei Nakariakov is in my opinion the greatest Classical solo trumpet player alive. When I first heard this CD, I had just been listening to his CD 'No Limit'(highly recomended), and I was expecting that same dark and haunting sound that many of his other CDs had. At first I was a little dissapointed, because many of the songs in this CD have a much brighter and livelier sound. But as I listened more to this CD, I began to appreciate the incredible musical and emotional depth that this CD had. His technical ability and musicality is truly incredible. I highly recommend this CD.

This young man is simply the best trumpet player I have heard. His tone, diction, articulation and virtuosity are superb, as are his range and endurance. (Circular breathing etc.) He should be required listening for all trumpet players. I suspect even those who are "anti-trumpet" would respect the integrity of his tone. BUT- he must be LISTENED to. That is, you must concentrate on listening. This is not background music.
