To the best of my knowledge, the combination of trumpet and organ is a very recent one, and there is no 18-19 century music written for such a combination. Thus, everything on this CD consists of adaptions of pieces written for other instruments/ensembles. To many purists, this is completely off-putting. However, not being a purist, I am not at all off-put.
Super-trumpeter Maurice André always felt the lack of music for his instrument and was always willing to adapt other pieces for it (the versatility of the piccolo trumpet made it possible to play things that could never be played on the natural instrument). The initial trumpet and organ records were made with the French label Erato and Hedwig Bilgram as partner, later with other partners.
To my ears, the combination two sounds, the clear sound of the trumpet and the sonorous richness of the organ, almost seem meant for each other, and the result here is a wonderful listening experience, with André's burnished tone and dazzling virtuosity showcased by splendid accompaniment. Indeed, the only quibble I can think of that listening to it all at once is like having a banquet consisting entirely of your favourite ice cream. You end up totally sated by it all. As a result, I tend to listen to bits at a time. I confess to having played some bits to death, such as the marvellous version of "Gloria in excelsis Deo ", with the tune known as "Angels we have heard on high". In this regard, I'd echo Tom Lehrer's famous version of the carol and say:
Angels we have heard on high
Tell us to GO OUT AND BUY!
Maurice André (21 May 1933 – 25 February 2012) made over 300 recordings from the late 1950s onwards. He was part of the rebirth of interest in Baroque music in the 1960s, playing on piccolo trumpet many transcriptions of music originally written for other instruments or voice as on this album. He was one of the finest trumpet players of the 20th Century and many current trumpeters including Alison Balsom and Wynton Marsalis cite him as an influence on their playing style and sound.
Jane Parker-Smith is an organist with an international reputation and has played with many major conductors and orchestras and given solo performances around the world. She continues to tour to this day and in 2014 will be playing the Royal Festival Hall organ after restoration for its 60th anniversary. Her collaboration with Maurice André is listed as a highlight in the biography on her web site.
I first encountered this recording on a 2 CD compilation boxset about 3 years ago. I fell in love with the music but never knew it was in quad until I researched the original LPs after being inspired by this blog. The 2 CD boxset presents three LPs plus two tracks from a fourth, but the tracks are a little mixed up which makes the musical experience a bit confusing. So while the tracks have been taken from the CD’s, they are presented here as one LP using the original LP’s cover art, which is much more informative than the CD inlay.
It is intended that the other two LPs from the boxset will be decoded and released in due course. Owen Smith
