Composer's Notes      Deutsch

Press Quotes      Deutsch
“Star trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger brought the entire spectrum of his virtuosity to bear, playing on the separate mouthpiece, and getting the various trumpets to twang and squawk using mutes. A performance piece with pulsating drive, which was great fun for the audience. Much applause and cheers in the well-attended Philharmonie in Essen.”
Neue Ruhr Zeitung

"Busking was composed for Håkan Hardenberger and makes full use of his phenomenal virtuosity... a dazzling cross-cut fabric of competing rhythms, with the banjo and accordion adding a brittle, almost sardonic edge."
The Guardian
