One Two One / Yoram Levy and Christopher Wrench
One of the few recordings to feature the Klais organ at the Queensland Performing Arts Concert Hall, One Two One is a collection of twentieth century music for trumpet and organ alone and together. Yoram Levy (previously of the Israeli Philharmonic and now principal trumpet with the Tasmanian Symphony) and Christopher Wrench (Lecturer in Organ at the Queensland Conservatorium) join forces to explore the very diverse textures and styles of Genzmer, Tomasi, Persichetti, Durufle and Hakim.
