Trumpet Legend Hakan Hardenberger

A wonderful article (link below) on the site, featuring trumpeter Hakan Hardenberger.

When researching the book, The Practice of Practice, I interviewed trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, who had just returned from a trumpet summit in Sweden. Ingrid was pregnant, and said that her baby didn’t react at all to any of the other trumpeters’ sound, because that baby has heard a lot of trumpet. But when Hakan Hardenberger played, she moved a lot! That’s how big and enveloping his tone is.

Within just a few bars of the exposition, I immediately knew I was witnessing the early days of one of the greatest trumpet players of all time.
