Fantastique – MSR 1506

Premiers for Trumpet and Wind Ensemble

I am so pleased to announce the release of Fantastique! This labor of love began a decade ago when I asked my good friend Evan Hause to create a wind ensemble orchestration of the Trumpet Concerto the Albany Symphony commissioned for me. For the 2007 ITG Conference, I asked Stephen Paulus to create a wind ensemble orchestration of his remarkable double concerto and James Stephenson to write a work for me and our teacher Charles Schlueter. For the final work on the disc I asked my UMass colleague Jeffrey Holmes to write a work for myself and trombonist Greg Spiridopoulos with whom I am fortunate to work nearly everywhere! The disc opens with Herald Emeritus Fanfare which was written to honor my UMass predecessor, Walter Chesnut performed by my students in the UMass Trumpet Ensemble. Documenting a decade of commissioning for trumpet and wind ensemble, I am delighted to share these works with the world.

Each of these works has been heard at an International Trumpet Guild Conference as well.

Evan Hause – Trumpet Concerto (Denver 2004)

Holmes – Herald Emeritus Fanfare (Amherst 2007)

Stephenson – Duo Fantastique (Amherst 2007)

Paulus – Concerto for Two Trumpets and Band (Amherst 2007)

Holmes – Continuum for Trumpet, Trombone and Wind Ensemble (Grand Rapids 2013)

For more information about the works – please see the program booklet.

American Sonatas for Trumpet and Piano

Calls and Echoes – MSR 1395

Sonatas by Stanley Friedman, Kent Kennan, James Stephenson and Robert Suderburg with Nadine Shank, Piano

Available at MSR Classics and Amazon

“[Eric Berlin’s] first album was excellent. This one is, too, and for the same reasons: solid and interesting program of modern works, beauty of tone, tasteful playing style, and impressive technical skills… I have valued performances that hold harshness at bay and bring out the work’s introspection. This is one of those—Berlin maintains warm tone… plays assertively at peak moments, and engages in meaningful dialog with his outstanding collaborator, pianist Nadine Shank.”
