Charles Butler, trumpet
Beethoven/Cooper – Symphony No. 10
Haydn – Trumpet Concerto
Brahms – Symphony No. 1
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 10 existed only as fragments until reconstructed in 1988 by Barry Cooper. New Principal Trumpet Charles Butler makes his solo debut with Symphony Tacoma in the Haydn Trumpet Concerto. The program concludes with Brahms’ gripping Symphony No. 1, the groundbreaking symphonic work that broke the post-Beethoven’s-9th writer’s block!
