Crispian Steele-Perkins is known as a virtuoso solo trumpeter whose particular interest is to restore, play and record upon antique instruments of the trumpet family. We chose to divide the interview into these 4 sections: A.

Tell us about this instrument! They were not made in large numbers but are twice coiled as opposed to single coil which has the advantage of a longer bell-taper, thus posibly better intonation of the basic harmonics. Mine is a converted "cavalry" or "duty" trumpet by J Astor, London dated, the addition of a slide having been considerably later.

Their mouthpieces are invariably more funnelled than a conventional trumpet which produces a less strident tone. There are interesting conclusions to be drawn from this. The tradition to play on this type of instrument was kept for a long time in England by players like Harper senior and junior.

Thousands of English Slide Trumpets survive from the 19th century [I have 9]. They are robustly built and are a perfected natural trumpet. I understand you are very fond of this instrument. What make it so special? On several of the tracks marked A, you play pieces by John T. Who was he? He emigrated to the USA in c.

Is it an original instrument you play on here? The difficulty is to obtain an even tone between the "open" and "Closed" notes. The height to which each key is raised is critical as is the precise size of the hole. You perform the andante and rondo by Hummel as a trio, with piano and violin.

Do you know if Weidinger, for whom Hummel wrote the concerto performed it like this? Allgemeine Musicalische Zeitung fully reported a concert by Weidinger in Dec in which amongst other things he played "a nicely written Trio for Keyed Trumpet , Violin and Pianoforte" by Hummel of Vienna. It is my contention that this was expanded in to his Concerto. In the slow movement of Hummel, track 5, you play some trills that are very special.

It sounds a bit funny and this effect indicates that Weidinger and Hummels must have worked close together. The Two Valved Trumpet What can you tell us about this instrument?. Early valves were just an instant crook; but they soon made the trumpet cromatic.

The final track, no. It is the famous Ave Maria by Schubert. Thomas Harper played it with such a trumpet. How did you find out this? The Cornopean. The Cornopean is regarded as an early cornet. What is the difference? Cornopean are not tapered at the mouthpiece end. Cornets are Tapered and accept smaller mouthpieces and sets of crooks which are also tapered.

You play on an original Cornopean. How was it to play on? Mine from by Kohler, London has Disc valves which cannot wear or leak, so it plays as well as the day it was made! Beautiful free tone with intonation to shame ANY modern manufacturer!!!

All the other tracks played on this instrument is also by that composer. Did he write anything for the Cornopean?

No, Mendelssohn would have regarded these instruments as "plebian" I think! Some final questions: The combination of the human voice and the trumpet is very interesting, especially with such a great singer as Ian Partridge.

Do you often perform with singers? I love to perform with good singers; it perfectly illustrates the point that in earlier times the trumpet blended well with the voice and effotlessly for both parties; a modern trumpet tends to overwhelm or "drown" a singer - not ALWAYS such a bad idea!! When you play on these different instruments, you have to switch to very different mouthpieces.

Is that a problem? One just has to get used to all the different sizes of mouthpieces. If you use the wrong one it will not sound properly. An instrument generally amplifies the sound you put in, also the tuning is invariably better if you use an appropriate mouthpiece. How can people get this CD?
