One is inclined to speak of "soulmates" after hearing Simon Höfele and Elisabeth Brauss play as a duo and after getting to know them both personally. It is like two people connecting with one another in music and in conversation when they either know each other very well or have forged a special bond for some other reason. The latter is sure to be true - this album is their first joint recording venture. With his album Standards, a testament to his time as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and in collaboration with two BBC orchestras, he devoted himself to the core repertoire of trumpet and orchestra and the great trumpet concertos by Haydn, Hummel, Copland and Arutiunian. Spearheading a young, go-getting generation of artists and awarded an Opus Klassik, he now takes a look at the New Standards - the 20th century chamber music for trumpet. Together with pianist Elisabeth Brauß, he interprets works by Arthur Honegger, Karl Pilss, Georges Enescu, Paul Hindemith, Jean Françaix and Alexander Arutiunian, which illustrate the mutability of his instrument in an astonishing way: "The trumpet repertoire contains works by many unfamiliar composers, works which really hardly anybody knows, there are nowhere near as many as there are for violin, and we have no Beethoven or Brahms - it's very much of a niche thing, and yet it's our standard repertoire and really great, wonderful music. The album is a kind of Best-Of of the chamber music literature for trumpet, it's a good selection and shows off the many facets of this repertoire", says Simon Höfele.
