“One of the leading soloists of his generation”

     –The International Trumpet Guild Journal

Giuliano Sommerhalder is a laureate of the world’s most prestigious international competitions, and has served as the Principal Trumpet in two of the world’s leading symphony orchestras (Leipzig and Amsterdam).

Today, he serves as Principal Trumpet with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin and is active worldwide as a soloist and teacher.


Giuliano Sommerhalder and his piano partner Kasia Wieczorek proudly present their new album “Vladimir Peskin – Complete Trumpet Music”. A milestone in the world of the classical trumpet recordings, this CD is a true discovery for those who are still looking for trumpet repertoire that can really keep up with repertoire written for more popular instruments, like the violin or the piano.

A musical descendant of Alexander Scryabin, Russian pianist and composer Vladimir Peskin was a close friend of the trumpet legend, Timofei Dokshizer, and wrote a whopping 75 minutes worth of romantic, singing, virtuosic and brilliant music for trumpet and piano, a great amount of which has remained nearly forgotten until today.
This is Giuliano’s tribute to this great idol of his, and to the great Russian trumpet tradition.
