After the great success of her debut album (OPUS KLASSIK award 2021) and her duo album with pianist En-Chia Lin, Selina Ott for her third recording teams up with renowned pianist Maria Radutu, conductor Dirk Kaftan and the ORF RSO to present selected works by Dmitri Shostakovich, Andr Jolivet and Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Shostakovich's Concerto for piano, trumpet and string orchestra (1933) is notable for a prevailing parodistic tone, which scarcely occurs in this form in any of his other works. Many of the themes that lend the music the distorted face of the grotesque are heard in the trumpet. The choice of instruments of Andr Jolivet's Concertino for trumpet, piano and strings is exactly the same as that of Shostakovich's work, but the latter is more of a piano concerto, while Jolivet's is more of a trumpet concerto. Like Shostakovich, Mieczyslaw Weinberg also incorporates several quotations into the final movement of his Trumpet Concerto (1967), for example the fanfare from Mendelssohn's Wedding March. Referred to by Shostakovich as "symphony for trumpet and orchestra", the Concerto presents music of a taut inner structure and logical consistency.
