For many years little or no information was available about the composer who had written the 19th century's most interesting trumpet concerto in Romantic style. Born into a family of musicians near Dresden in 1870, Oskar Böhme studied in Germany and Hungary and then emigrated to Russia, where he even changed his nationality in order to improve his chances of a place in one of the great orchestras. Despite his efforts to perfect integration into Russian society, his German origins proved fateful when the Bolsheviks seized power. With this album Matthias Höfs aims to shed light on a composer and musician that has been in the dark. He presents a rare recording - his third recording with The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen - with beautiful, expressive and romantic music.
