"I'll keep it short and simple: this is as poor a recording of this venerable work as I have ever heard! John Wallace might be an adequate trumpet player technically, but his musicianship suffers incredible lapses. His (own?) cadenzas are all ego and quite ugly, his intonation frequently slips, his articulation is sloppy, and the liberties he takes with the score are trite and quite unmusical. He's even worse in this regard than Rolf Smedvig! Skip this recording and get Hakan Hardenberger's beautifully played and artfully realized version instead."
