Synopsis

Amazon.com
Shostakovitch's influence shadows much of this disc, most obviously in the Trumpet Concerto of his friend Moissei Vainberg. It's a serious work, despite its plethora of virtuosic opportunities for the soloist. There's an emotionally charged slow movement and perky outer ones. While it's a tough workout for any trumpet virtuoso, Nakariakov, at 23, is one of the world's elite players, so this work holds no terrors for him. He sails through it with firm, lovely tonal variety, making the most of the lyrical first movement, the darker second, and the quote-filled finale. Artunian's jazzy concerto is a light appetizer to the Vainberg, and the harmless Gliere Concerto, arranged for flugelhorn, gives us an opportunity to hear that mellifluous instrument. The Vainberg is the main event and it's worth knowing, while Nakariakov's splendid playing will entrance. --Dan Davis
 

CD Reviews

A great CD
S. Mills | vancouver Wa | 01/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sergei's Artunian is one of the best ive ever heard. His interpritation of that piece is perfect. Being a young trumpet player myself, it is an inspiration to listen to such a great musician. Both the other pieces on this cd are exellent. The Vainberg concerto is amazing, you can also hear quotes from some of the most well known trumpet exerpts, including petrouchka and mahlers 5th. The Horn Concerto is played beautifully on the flugel horn. His phrasing and expression are perfect.
A great album, well worth the buy!

"Now and then a CD happens along that is so tasty that it becomes a surprise favorite. This beautifully performed recording features the fine trumpeter Sergei Nakariakov with Andrey Boreyko conducting the Jenaer Philharmonie.

The works are varied, from the delightful but not so challenging Gliere Concerto for horn & orchestra in B flat (here adapted for flugelhorn) to the brilliant Mieczyslaw Vainberg Concerto for trumpet & orchestra in B flat, Op 94. This latter is a work of dynamic, dramatic contrasts, from the lyrical beauty of the opening movement to the deeply moving slow movement to the challenging and high-flying finale. Nakariakov is a true virtuoso and his facility with his instrument and intense commitment to the score make this a joy to hear. The CD opens with a bit of pastiche in the delightful Concerto for trumpet and orchestra by Alexander Arutiunian, an apropos introduction for this fine recital.

Andrey Boreyko provides superb collaboration with his sensitive conducting. These two young men are important rising stars in the field and welcome additions from Russia to the stages of the world. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, November 05
