What Simon Höfele does with his trumpet is simply sensational! The prizewinner of the German Music Competition and winner of the special prize ‘U 21’ of the ARD music competition shows all his skills on his GENUIN debut CD in the Primavera Edition. It presents an electrifying program of contemporary music: from György Ligeti to HK Gruber, from André Jolivet to Toshio Hosokawa. What results is a firework of sounds, between delicate hints and shattering fanfares, between deep seriousness and teasing humor. Höfele and his colleagues on piano and percussion start with a debut that promises for a great career.

The Arts Desk

HK Gruber’s Exposed Throat closes proceedings, an exhilarating display of contemporary playing techniques. All oddly compelling, and invariably entertaining. Beautifully recorded and produced, though there’s frustratingly little information about the pieces chosen.
