Ensemble: Trumpets in Concert

Gernot Kahofer, Manuel Lichtenwöhrer, Leonhard Leeb, trumpets

TRUMPETS IN CONCERT celebrated its 25th stage anniversary in 2023. Founded by Leonhard Leeb, the classical band has earned its high international reputation with outstanding concerts at international festivals such as the Bregenz Festival, Carinthian Summer, 'Proms at St. Jude's' in London, a tour of Canada and a cultural guest appearance in China (including the Deyang Music Festival at the Deyang Concert Hall). A highlight of their career was certainly the invitation from the Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer, who asked them twice (2004, 2010) to provide the musical framework for his inauguration. The international classical music labels NAXOS (worldwide release of the CD 'Imperial Fanfares') and ARS Production have long since become aware of the trumpeters, and the BBC Online magazine in London also devoted an article to them. Their album 'Requiem for a friend' was 4th in the iTunes Chart 'Top Classical Albums' in Spain and 1st in the iTunes Chart 'Top Classical Albums' in Austria. In 2005, they played the world premiere of 'Fanfare for Carinthia' by Sir Peter Maxwell Davis as part of the Carinthian Summer. The three trumpeters, trained at music universities, have made their mark on Viennese concert life with breathtaking performances and captivating concert evenings.
