Haendel – The trumpet shall sound

It’s cheerful, merry, noble, it elevate the soul and the heart, pumps the blood faster in our veins. Put the CD in your player and you will be filled with an intense sensation of well-being and pleasure. Is this the work of the trumpet and horn ? We can see that in many of his compositions, Handel uses those two instruments in a repertoire that goes from religious to profane works, most notably in Water Music and Fireworks, composed to be played in the royal gardens.

Guy Touvron and Jean-Paul Imbert wished to give you a Handelian anthology for organ and trumpet or horn, that puts into perspective the diverse emotions going through the original works.
