Shostakovich Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings, Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra
The highlight of the first half was Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano and Trumpet with soloists Christopher Guild (piano) and Edward Maxwell (trumpet)… both soloists gave outstanding performances in the challenging work.

Shostakovich Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings, London City Chamber Orchestra, (Hadleigh, Suffolk)
The trumpet playing was excellent with Edward Maxwell sometimes strident and at others obtaining a beautifully soft sound.

Concert with Warlock Singers and North Downs Consort, Penshurst
The guest soloist for the evening was Edward Maxwell, who astonished the audience with a performance of Purcell’s Sonata for Trumpet. This was played on the natural trumpet… accompanied by Ian le Grice. The programme ended in rumbustious fashion with a high-spirited rendition of Warlock’s ‘Yarmouth Fair’… which had some delightful ad libs on the trumpet from Edward Maxwell

Quiet City by Copland with Surrey ProMusica, Harlequin Theatre, Redhill
Edward excelled himself with his interpretation of the 1940s era composition from this distinguished American.

Vivaldi Double Trumpet Concerto with Surrey ProMusica, Harlequin Theatre, Redhill
The first half concluded with virtuoso performances by Edward Maxwell and Richard Hammond playing Vivaldi’s Concerto in C for two trumpets. The imitation and rivalry of this marvellous baroque piece was superbly brought to life by these two masters of their art.
