Duo Programmes with Elmar Schrammel:

Flügel trifft Flügelhorn

Flugel horn and piano: taking minimalism as a theme, and combining modern with classical repertoire, this programme of arrangements (Ligeti, J.S.Bach, etc) and original compositions (Michael Nyman and Cornelius Schwehr) explores the colours of the flugel horn with the piano.


‘Sonate’ or ‘Sonata’ comes from ‘sonare’ meaning ‘sounding’. It referred to a piece that was ‘played’ rather than sung (‘cantata’). In this project we play four works for trumpet and piano bridging Europe with the USA: from Denmark (trumpeter and composer, Thorvald Hansen), to America (George Antheil and Joseph Hallman), to the UK (Donald Bousted). Elmar Schrammel juxtaposes these large-scale duos with Ives’ ‘Three Page Sonata’ and the ‘Antisonate’ by Luc Ferrari for solo piano.
