Baroque Masterpieces: Music for Trumpet and Organ
Dominic Derasse & Kenneth Bowen
The trumpet has a long history dating back literally thousands of years, and has always been associated with moments and occasions of deep emotion and high festivity. Its sounds have been called upon to lead armies and frighten foes, to celebrate coronations and to help consecrate marriages. In the hands of an expert it can evoke a breadth of feelings perhaps more effectively than any other instrument. Dominic Derasse and his gifted colleague, organist Kenneth Bowen, have put together a performance of great interest and excitement, both sonically and artistically.
Internationally renowned trumpet player, Dominic Derasse was born in France. After studying trumpet and conducting at the Nice Conservatory in 1976, he was given charge of the Municipal Concert/Marching Band in St. Paul De Vence. The following year, he won the competition to enter the Paris National Conservatory and graduated with 1st Prize in 1979. Since moving to New York, he has performed with The New York Philharmonic, St. Luke’s Orchestra, New York Pops, American Symphony, Manhattan Philharmonic, Bronx Arts Ensemble, Colonial Symphony, Sainte Cecelia Orchestra, Naumberg Orchestra, Musica Sacra, Collegiate Chorale, NY Choral Society and the EOS Ensemble. He is in demand all over the world and has performed in Europe, South Africa, Asia, North and South America.
