Timofei Dokshizer
Classic Concertos for Trumpet

The golden collection of trumpeters' concert repertoire includes three concertos for trumpet by classical composers.  The concertos of Haydn and Hummel were originally written for trumpet and were discovered in library archives in the 20th century.  The concerto of Neruda was originally composed for posthorn and was abandoned by the author.  It was forgotten and found only in the middle of the 20th century in the reserves of a London library.  However, the concerto was totally inappropriate for performing on the trumpet.  But trumpeters are curious people - their repertoire is very poor and it is necessary to seek out quality concert literature.  Therefore, trumpeters used all their effort trying to adapt the concerto of Neruda to their instrument and nowadays there are many known versions of this composition.
Timofei Dokshizer is one of the more recent trumpeters who have made their own version of this concerto.  He expresses a hope that future trumpet players will decide which of these versions will be included into the golden collection of trumpet repertoire.
