The most famous trumpet concertos interpreted by an Austrian soloist and a Viennese Orchestra. Josef Hofbauer is the first Austrian trumpeter in 20 years to record the great works for trumpet on a CD. He is accompanied by the Schönbrunn Festival Orchestra and its Principal conductor Guido Mancusi.

“With this CD I devote myself to a journey with the Schönbrunn Festival Orchestra. A journey through various music genres and their trumpet concertos. It is also a journey through my past…. Each concerto we recorded for this CD has its own story in my past – thus My Favourite Trumpet Concertos” – Josef Hofbauer
