Paul Merkelo speaks with FM91 - Toledo about 'The Enlightened Trumpet'

Bookmark and Share
Interview with WGTE's Brad Cresswell

Trumpet virtuoso (and principal of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra) Paul Merkelo has a new recording out on Sony Classical, which features stand-out performances of four popular concertos – all composed during The Age of Enlightenment in Europe (as Paul explains in this interview, the trumpet and its music was itself going through some changes during this period). Paul brings three different trumpets (including one of them custom made) for fresh and fantastic performances of works by Haydn, Telemann, Leopold Mozart, and Hummel.
