Otto Sauter visits University of Missouri

World-renowned piccolo trumpet soloist and teacher Otto Sauter held a mini-residency at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, at the beginning of October.  

Sauter began his residency with a recital that featured his piccolo trumpet playing on Claude Rippas’ arrangement of Telemann’s Recorder Sonata, TWV 41:C2 and the second movement of Marcello’s Oboe Concerto in D Minor. For the performances of Sinfonia à due Trombe in D Major by Anonymous and for the Finale of Vivaldi’s Concerto for 2 Trumpets, Sauter was joined by MU trumpet professor Dr. Iskander Akhmadullin, who also performed works by Turrin, Conway Baker, and Piazzolla. Dr. Natalia Bolshakova provided piano accompaniment for the recital.
