|Immer and baroque class
In June 2004, Professor Friedemann Immer's baroque trumpet class from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, went on a ten-day concert tour of Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria.
Immer's current students are:
- Nicholas Althouse (USA)
- Christoph Draeger (Germany)
- Kristin Hetland (Norway)
- Tom Lowe (Great Britain)
- Julie Ogle (USA)
- Jörg Segtrop (Germany)
- Elias Stolz (Italy)
- Niranjan Wijewickrema (Belgium)
Joining the trumpet class were former students Jaroslav Roucek and Paolo Bacchin (trumpets) as well as guest musicians Daniela Thomas (alto), Mareile Schmidt (organ), and Frithjof Koch (timpani).
The tour began in Dresden with the trumpet class participating in a performance of Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s Missa Salisburgensis with the Dresden Baroque Orchestra. This impressive work calls for a total of ten trumpets: two in the orchestra and two choirs with four each.
After this performance, the trumpet class performed eight concerts on their own in Dresden, Prague, Karlsbad, Kremsier, Vöklabruck (with the Linzer Trompetenensemble), Hinterzarten, and finally Bad Säckingen in a feature concert for the Historic Brass Society Symposium being held at the Trompetenmuseum Bad Säckingen June 11-13.
Also as part of the Historic Brass Society’s lectures, Professor Immer and brass instrument maker Rainer Egger delivered a presentation on "Acoustic properties of Baroque trumpets with and without vent holes: A comparison between computer measurements and players' and listeners' perceptions."
