Brandenburg Concerto No.2

Perhaps one of the greatest pieces written for trumpet happens to have been penned near the beginning of the canon of classical music, Bach’s Second Brandenburg Concerto.

Playing his Christmas Oratorio, his b-minor Mass, and various cantatas such as his ‘Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen,’ I have experienced no other composer who wrote for trumpet as did Bach to better illustrate what angels with trumpets must sound like. It is a favorite of mine and audiences worldwide, something I always look forward to playing.
