About this album

Music is song, a melody that begins with the human voice. All the works included on this CD are written by composers who were masters of writing music for the human voice, whether it be as opera, oratorio or songs, and their instrumental music is as lyrically full as their vocal compositions are. As an instrumentalist, one can only hope to imitate as well as possible in performance the nuances of phrasing, color and lyricism of great singers.
My trumpet is my voice, my instrument of expression that I have to sing through these great works of music. Each piece has presented its own challenges; Telemann, with its extraordinary long phrases, Haydn, by far the best known work ever written for the trumpet, the Brandenburg Concerto, in Bachs use of the trumpet as a second oboe or recorder…a true work of chamber music, the arias with soprano, in blending my sound in duet as the second soprano and, lastly, Mozart, where I take the role as The Queen of the Night and have to express the drama and anger of the aria only with the music, without the benefit of text.

(...) most impressed by Telemann, where Brydenfelts velvety tone and dynamics do justice to one of the most gorgeous movements in the trumpet repertory. (...) (...) The soprano has a full, colorful, utterly gorgeous voice and sounds marvelous in three soprano-trumpets arias. (...)
