The Golden Age Of The Cornet - Antonsen, Ole Edvard

‘The trumpet is an instrument of sin while the cornet belongs to the angels.’ This quotation is generally attributed to Herbert Lincoln Clarke, possibly the greatest cornet-player of all time. In this celebration of the cornet and the wind band tradition, he accordingly gets to both open and close the programme with his two pieces The Debutante and Bride of the Waves. The American Clarke was for more than 20 years, from 1893 until 1917, solo cornet-player with the most famous of wind ensembles: the Sousa Band. His successor in the band, Frank Simon, is also represented on this disc, along with other leading notables of wind band music between c. 1850-1950, such as the Australian Percy Code and John Hartmann, born in Prussia but mainly active in England. Several of these sparkling and virtuosic pieces have been arranged especially for the present combination of Ole Edvard Antonsen and the Royal Norwegian Navy Band, including Ole Bull’s The Herdmaiden’s Sunday (Sæterjentens søndag), Grieg’s In the Hills (Ved Rondane) and Dinicu’s Hora staccato, usually heard on the violin.
