Karl Pilss Sonata for Trumpet and Piano
Trumpet and piano duo recitals are rare in a chamber music series and the repertoire is less familiar to audiences. Born in 1998 and of Nigerian-Scottish descent, Aaron Azunda Akugbo hails from Edinburgh and is poised as a future leading exponent of his instrument. He brings a wide-ranging musical taste to his artistry and despite being classically trained, cites Louis Armstrong as his biggest musical inspiration. He is a charismatic performer with an abundance of natural humour which translates into an effortless engagement with people and audiences.
...a refined soloist...His sound was sweet, often lyrical... with perfect clarity and intonation"
