There is a dearth of short, romantic trumpet pieces of intermediate grade that challenge and inspire players who already feel secure both in their technique and powers of interpretation. The reissue of Legend by R. Orlando Morgan (1865–1956) will therefore be greatly welcomed, as music enriched by the passionate harmonies of Tchaikovsky and even of Wagner, in an idiom that is graceful and sure. Though largely forgotten, the composer was one of many whose artful command of classical styles earned them respect in their lifetimes, neglect thereafter on account of changing fashions and now, with yet another swing of the pendulum of taste, the chance for re-evaluation today.
