Trumpet Fanfares

While I was in north London yesterday, I happened to go in a record shop that specializes in Classical music. As it seemed like a struggling area, I felt I ought to buy at least something. Fortunately, they had those cheap Naxos Classical music CDs.

I chose something a bit different, a Naxos CD of trumpet fanfares, mostly from Habsburg Italy and Germany. It is really good. It kind of appeals to my eccentric nostalgia for the Holy Roman Empire and the Habsburg dynasty.
