Jonathan Freeman-Attwood is on a mission to improve the repertoire available to trumpet and piano duos. In this third release of music for trumpet, Attwood and Daniel-Ben Pienaar merge the past's music with today's instruments to create innovative and inspiring re-workings of classic 19th and 20th century sonatas. These beautiful settings can't help but to beg the question- What might have been if the trumpet had taken hold of the hearts of the great composers?

Jonathan Freeman-Attwood and Daniel-Ben Pienaar have collaborated again to experiment and see what happens when enthusiastic artists decide to re-work classic sonatas of the 19th and 20th century. Throughout this project, Attwood and Pienaar have been observant of the period and compositional style of the original four works and have embraced the defining characteristics of each composition. As a result, these re-workings are exciting, extremely refreshing and shine a bit brighter in these creative, evolutionary interpretations.
