Ponchielli: Trumpet concerto, Op. 123 Giuliano Sommerhalder (trumpet); Trumpet concerto, Op. 146 Giuliano Sommerhalder (trumpet); Trumpet concerto, Op. 198 Giuliano Sommerhalder (trumpet); Gran Capriccio for Oboe & Orchestra, Op. 80 Simone Sommerhalder (oboe); Concerto for Euphonium, Op. 155 Roland Froscher (euphonium), “The music itself is all appealingly wrought and displays an almost extravagant level of melodic fecundity. Don't expect the sweeping, veristic style of La Gioconda, however...The soloists are all excellent. Giuliano Sommerhalder's clear, open tone transcends the stereotype of the virtuoso trumpeter. He shapes the ornamental bits and the cantabiles alike with a natural-sounding flexibility” --MusicWeb International
