The new CD of the trumpeter Joachim K. Schäfer focusses on Bach and Dresden. Bach, who never actually worked at Dresden, yet had a close relationship with the Dresden court, and was influenced by the local preference for the Italian style. Bach adapted concertos by Vivaldi and Marcello, which Schäfer again arranged for his Dresden Baroque Soloists. They play Bach’s music in a chamber music formation, in which Schäfer can show his great skills as a trumpeter, converting his instrument into an equivalent partner to the violin or the violoncello.
