Divertissement - Paul Archibald and Juliet Edwards
Buy at
Trumpeter and arranger, Paul Archibald, has made these stunning versions for trumpet and piano of well-loved pieces. On this disc, he performs them with pianist Juliet Edwards.
This cosmopolitan pot-pourri opens with a selection of Russian pieces: Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, Mussorgsky's Gopak and Capriccio, a Shostakovich piano Prelude and a medley of Tchaikovsky's ballet music.

We then move to the flamboyance of Spanish music by a Polish composer! Four pieces featured here from Moritz Moszkowski's Spanish Dances receive exhilarating performances. The Berceuse from Granados Escenas poeticas provides a beautiful contrast in tone and colour.

French music follows: Two of Delibes balletic compositions sit alongside Debussy's Passepied, Faure's Song Without Words , and a movement from Ravel's Sonatine for piano, the Rigaudon from Le Tombeau de Couperin completing this delightful selection.

Bizet's Carmen is loved by opera-goers throughout the world. Here, Paul Archibald and Juliet Edwards perform the Prelude and Chanson Boheme, Choeur des Gamins, Habanera, Seguedille, the Entr'acte to Act IV and the Overture.
