ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fantasies and Fairy Tales features all new adaptations, arrangements, and compositions for trumpet and piano created by Brandon Ridenour. Pianist Naomi Kudo lends her touch to the album and is one of the finest up-and-coming players and collaborators in the music world. All of the repertoire follows the title concept "Fantasies and Fairy Tales" and perhaps one of the most ambitious adaptations is Robert Schumann's Marchenbilder, originally for viola and piano. Flugelhorn is featured on the expressive outer movements, while the trumpet is used on the triumphant and devilish inner movements. Three image provoking and contrasting Debussy preludes were arranged for the album; Bruyeres, Puck's Dance, and The Girl with the Flaxen Hair. The conclusion of the album is a new tour de force composition written to truly test the capabilities of the trumpet; Brandon RIdenour's "Fantasy Variations" on a theme by Paganini. This famous theme (Caprice #24) showcases the trumpet in both virtuosic and romantic spectrums.

This music was not initially intended for the trumpet; this was all predominantly string and piano music. Both instruments certainly have a range and technical edge that surpass what we expect a trumpet can do. As an instrument, the trumpet was not at all fully developed when much of this repertoire was written (like Schumann and Brahms). One can only imagine what these composers could have done with the instrument had it been more developed and accepted as a solo instrument. This album fantasizes the idea of these composers writing for trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet and an array of colorful mutes. Not only was the valved trumpet in its early stages in the 1800s, its players were as well. The trumpet and its players have come a long ways, but the evolution must continue to move forward rather than stand still. "Fantasies and Fairy Tales" will help push both the evolution of the trumpet and also the evolution of classical album concepts through theme-based compilations of the greatest music ever written.
