Georg Philipp Telemann was an eternally-experimenting composer. His inventiveness was never better showcased than in his three-part Tafelmusik (Table music), from part 2 of which the two pieces heard here are taken. Giuseppe Torelli, in his trumpet concerti, preferred themes based on triads and frequently cadencing caesuras. World-renowned musician Maurice Andre is a natural choice to perform these excellent examples of works written for the trumpet.
