    I would highly recommend the Sergei Nakariakov Recording on 'From Moscow with Love' (I got my Copy from ebay quite a bit cheaper)
    It's also been recorded by Timofei Dok****zer (sp?) and Arturo Sandoval of all people :confused: as well as others.

    ooo thanx, im playing that in a fortnight for my final recital at uni, seems its a popular choice, 3 out of the 4 cornet players are playing it, think the audience might start getting bored of it, glad im on first. lol

    A really good rendition is by Maurice Murphy on 'Favourite Trumpet Concertos' accompanied by the Consort Of London (Robert Haydon Clark). Exceptional playback quality as it is a 1992 Collins, Quest Ambisonic 20 bit recording (30082).

    Off-topic (sorry mods!), but if anyone's interested in what this means, an explanation of ambisonics is contained here.

    There are a few recordings of this around, including James Watson accompanied by Black Dyke ( Doyen - CD036 ).
    The industry standard is the late Timofei Dokschizer, simply phenomonal. One version is available through the International Trumpet Guild ( and there is another that I have on CD somewhere - I will search it out and post details.

    James Watson, Maurice Murphy, Sergei Nakariakov etc all do great jobs, but Dokschizer is simply amazing.

    Roger Webster has also recorded the concerto if anyone is interested!

    Timofei Dokschizer is dead! :eek: (The piece was written for him, wasn't it?)

    Sadly, Maestro Dokschizer is no longer with us - you can read Ed Tarr's obituary here

    As for the Arutunian, although Maestro Dokschizer edited the trumpet part and wrote the cadenza for this work, which was accepted by the composer, the concerto was actually written for Dokschizer's friend, Aikaz Mesiayan. It was Mesiayan who premiered the concerto.

    I have the recording from the national gala concert 1987 the arrangement was Mike Antrobus's and Desford provided the accompaniment but I can't remember who the (excellent) soloist was - was it Rod Franks? - some fantastic double tonguing as i recall...
