‘Paul Merkelo knows no limits’ declared one of Germany’s top classical critics in Der Spiegel. Now this charismatic Canadian trumpeter is joining the ECO for a concert that takes baroque music, gives it a quick shake, and stands it on its head.
Merkelo unleashes the pageantry and splendour of Telemann, then leaps forward into the poetry and wit of Haydn’s ever-popular Trumpet Concerto. To set the mood, the award-winning young guest conductor Adrien Perruchon goes baroque-around-the-clock as Thierry Escaich and Igor Stravinsky reinvent the 18th century in the most delightfully unexpected way.
