Transcriptions Baroque

Recorded in the beautiful Trinity College Chapel in Melbourne, this organ/trumpet CD presents eight works that take you on a journey through the art of the concerto in the Baroque period.

Transcription has formed an integral part of musical development across the centuries. Composers and performers have gained an intimate knowledge of compositional style from transcriptions, while adding to the collection of music available for performance on their instrument.

Recorded in the beautiful Trinity College Chapel, and featuring trumpeter, Anthony Pope (Orchestra Victoria) and Perth-based organist, Dominic Perissinotto, Transcriptions Baroque presents eight works that take you on a journey through the art of the concerto in the Baroque period. Four of these pieces are performed on trumpet with the orchestral part arranged for the organ. The remainder were transcribed for solo organ by renowned organists of their day.


Anthony Pope

Anthony began playing cornet in the Daylesford Brass Band at the age of ten. He competed in and won numerous trumpet and cornet competitions throughout Australia. In 1986 he moved to Melbourne to study at the Victorian College of the Arts, and in 1992 he joined the State Orchestra of Victoria, later becoming Associate Principal Trumpet, a position he still holds.

Dominic Perissinotto

Dominic Perissinotto is one of Australia's most prolific performers, widely sought after as a soloist and accompanist. In promoting his passion for the pipe organ not only as a church instrument, but also as a concert and ensemble instrument, Dominic has worked with a number of musicians throughout Australia and Europe.
