I had the opportunity to play a recital and teach a masterclass on June 1st in Tokyo. My hosts were the Japanese Trumpeter's Association and Yamaha. The concert was at the Music Salon at the huge Yamaha store in the Ginza in Tokyo. The crowd was standing room only, and of course many were trumpet players! My collaborative pianist was the extraordinary Midori Nagahara, and the program was the J. G. Penniquin "Morceau de Concert," Charles Reskin's "Sonata" and Joseph Turrin's "Caprice." Following the mini-concert was a masterclass which included 3 players from Tokyo -- an undergraduate student, a graduate student, and a free-lance performer, all being coached on standard orchestral excerpts.
