Pleased to see Sergei Nakariakov in your list, drdahlagerdc. I’m not familiar with “Widmung”, but heard something from “No Limit” and had to rush out and get the record (as it were). Such a musical player! And he palys some of the pieces on Flugelhorn, which is probably my favourite brass instrument. Gorgeous!
As you started with a classical player, I hope it’s alright to add another one here: Crispian Steele-Perkins. I bought a CD of baroque music by him at least 25 years ago and it has always been one of my favourites. Beautiful clear, crisp notes, with clean edges that just sing out. Fabulous. And I believe it’s all played on baroque trumpet, without valves. How on earth does he do that? (Seriously, how on earth can anyone do that?)
I had a listen to Ingrid Jensen. Lovely melodic playing. Will have to check her out some more. (Danke für den Vorschlag, Pia! 😉
