Duo Archibald & Edwards, UK, 2007
Tour Dates: 11 Apr - 24 Apr, 2007 

Paul Archibald - Trumpet
Juliet Edwards - Piano

Paul Archibald and Juliet Edwards collaborate on a variety of projects. Each year they perform and coach as part of the Aberystwyth International Musicfest, the Dartington International Summer School and for the Benslow Music Trust. At Aberystwyth this year, Paul and Juliet gave a duo recital along with several concerts of chamber music, and performed in the final concerto concert of the festival. At Dartington they gave a recital with the trombone virtuoso, John Kenny, and Benslow sees a weekend of chamber music in which the participants receive individual tuition and ensemble coaching.

The duo gives frequent performances of repertoire for trumpet and piano, and is committed to performing contemporary works and commissioning new pieces. This year they have commissioned works for trumpet and piano by John Reeman and Zhou Long, the Chinese-born Grammy Award- winning American composer. Paul and Juliet have also recently worked with British composers such as Cecilia McDowall and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, whose virtuosic Sonata they have recorded for the composer’s own MaxOpus label. In addition to this work Paul also recorded his Sonatine for solo trumpet and other selected works for brass ensemble.

They are founders and Artistic Advisors to Brass Classics, a recording label that highlights the colourful world of brass and its performers. This label, which enjoys distribution in twenty-three countries throughout the world, features two duo CDs by Paul and Juliet, Joie de Vivre and Divertissement. Also on the label Juliet performs Khalkis, a concerto by Alan Hovhaness, conducted by Paul. This piece appears on Proclamation, a recording featuring musicians from the Vienna, Berlin and Munich Philharmonics and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. In addition to her role as pianist, Juliet is also a producer for the label.

They also perform a repertoire of concertos for piano and trumpet which includes Shostakovich’s Concerto No 1, André Jolivet’s Concertino and a new commission, Concerto for Trumpet and Piano, by the Welsh composer Rob Davies, and a concertos for mixed groupings such as Respighi’s Concerto a Cinque for oboe, trumpet, violin, double bass, piano and strings and Arvo Pärt’s Concerto Piccolo über BACH for trumpet, strings, harpsichord and piano.

Future plans include concerts and masterclasses in Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, China and the USA.

Paul and Juliet greatly enjoy working with children, young people and adult amateurs, and give frequent workshops, masterclasses and children’s recitals together. They run course each year at Musicfest Aberystwyth, Dartington International Summer School and for the Benslow Trust, where the students include young professional, conservatoire students, school pupils and amateurs. Paul gives masterclasses and directs ensemble playing, Juliet coaches students on solo and chamber repertoire and the duo performs as part of the course.

Paul and Juliet are in demand to give masterclasses and recitals at schools, colleges and in the community. A typical session includes a workshop followed by a short recital. In the workshop, young people play and Paul and Juliet work with them on all aspects of performance. All instrumentalists and singers are welcome, not just brass and piano. Recitals for children comprise an eclectic mix of stimulating pieces, for example Jeremiah Clarke’s famous March played on the hosepipe, and the Mexican Tico Tico, complete with audience participation on percussion. Demonstrations of how the instruments work, enlightenment on musical styles and a chance for audience questions are all part of the show!
