A solo CD featuring baroque trumpet performer Josh Cohen with conductor Daniel Abraham is planned for recording in 2019 and intended for the Musica Omnia label. Featuring performances requiring extremely demanding clarino playing—baroque trumpet in its highest register—the recording promises to showcase Josh Cohen’s mastery of this once lost craft and his uncanny ability to make this treacherous work seems both easy and profoundly musical (“sprezzature”). The proposed repertoire also represents a few better-known works (Graupner, Telemann and Torelli) and selections that have received few or no previous recordings on period instruments (Bond, Endler, Finger and Rittler).
