In Recital at Tulle Cathedral

An exceptional programme from two consummate performers, blending new arrangements of classical and baroque works with the premiere recording of Roger Steptoe’s Sonata for Trumpet and Organ. Graham Ashton is professor of Trumpet at Purchase Collage, New York, and as a performer over the past 25 years has given over 200 master classes and recitals in 21 different countries. Michael Matthes is a similarly esteemed performer—a tenured organist of the Cathedral of Troyes, France and a recipient of the prestigious French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of his services to music.
