In 1956, she was awarded the fi rst prize for organ at the Competition of the German Colleges of Music, and in 1959 the fi rst prize at the International Music Competition of the German Broadcasting Networks.

    Since 1961, Hedwig Bilgram has taught organ, and since 1964 harpsichord at the College of Music in Munich. Her versatility as organist and harpsichordist is documented in the numerous record productions, concert tours at home and abroad, and in her collaboration with Maurice Andr, Jean-Pierre Rampai, Paul Meisen, etc. On the occasion of Albrecht Drer Year in Nuremberg in 1971, Hedwig Bilgram had the honor of giving the fi rst performance of Harald Genzmers Organ Concerto. She was appointed, as the only German, to the jury of the International Bach Piano Competition held in Toronto in May 1985. Numerous record and radio productions complement her concert activities.

    certamen aonium (Competition of the Muses). In many respects, Eberlins Toccata Prima posesses the character of a praeludium. The natural style of its melodic invention is a pointed example for Eberlins endeavors, on the threshold to the Classic, to combine the prevailing Italian style with German elements (H. Abert).

    The Bach Trumpet Ensemble Munich was founded by Arnold Mehl. Above all, the ensemble places emphasis on the exernplary interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bachs trumpet parts, paying special attention to phrasing, articulation, and dynamics.

    The Bach Trumpet Ensemble Munich has appeared at the following festivals: Flanders Festival Brugge, Festival Estival Paris, Festival Aix en Provence, Wrzburger Bach Tage, Bach Week Ansbach, Salzburg Festival. The ensemble has played with a number of well-known conductors (including Helmut Rilling and Wolfgang Gnnenwein), and participated in many radio, television and record productions. In 1984, the Bach Trumpet Ensemble Munich participated in the following events : Summer Academy Johann Sebastian Bach in Stuttgart, television productions for ZDF/ORF (Bach

    cantatas directed by Helmut Rilling) for Bach year 1985, B minor Mass at the German Bach Festival of the New Bach Society in Kassel. In 1985, participation in numerous concerts celebrating Bach year, including 14 performances of the B minor Mass. Concerts at the European Music Festival in Stuttgart. Regular collaboration with the Munich Bach Choir/Munich Bach Orchestra following a fi rst co-operation on the occasion of a performance of the B minor Mass in November 1985. In 1987, a record production with Franz Lehrndorfer for BR/harmonia mundi. The appearances of the ensemble in the fi nal concerts of the Bach Week Ansbach 1987, with Bachs B minor Mass brought acclaim from both audience and international press. At the Bach Week Ansbach 1989, the Bach Trumpet Ensemble Munich participated in fi ve concerts: two each with the Soloists Ensemble of the Bach Week and the German Chamber Philharmonic Frankfurt on modern piccolo trumpets, as well as a cantata concert with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble under the direction of Eric Ericson, on natural trumpets.

    employed elements of the gallant idiom which had come into fashion. These new stylistic elements, together with the abundant use of suspensions, sighing motives, and sentimental minor shadings, mark the character of his three-movement Sonata in C major, which is preserved in a manuscript score in the Schsische Landesbibliothek, Dresden. The two violin parts and that of the Basso continuo accompanying the four trumpets and timpani have been taken over in our recording by the organ in a trio sonata-like setting.

    With a construction avoiding the monotony so often found in this genre, the Anonymous Dresden Aufzug (fanfare) provides us with an outstanding example of the extraordinary capabilities of the Dresden court trumpeters around the middle of the 18th century.

    As a student of Dietrich Buxtehude, Nicolaus Bruhns was a representative of the so-called North German organ school, whose typical elements are found also in his Praeludium in g minor: strongly contrasting structures (virtuoso-homophonic as opposed to contrapuntal sections), arpeggiated chords, chromatic voice leading in transitional harmonies, and virtuoso passages and trills in the pedal.

    Johann Gottfried Walther belonged to the circle around J.S. Bach. Municipal organist and court musician in Weimar, he also achieved distinction as theorist through the publication of his Musicalisches Lexicon (1732). His Partita sopra Jesu, meine Freude stands in the tradition of the chorale variation of the second half of the 18th century, and distinguishes itself through a well considered structure, polished counterpoint, and song-like elegant melody, all this combined with strong contrasts between the two-part variations, extreme virtuoso sections, and organo pleno effects.

    Carlmann Kolb and Johann Ernst Eberlin belong to the South German/Austrian organ school at the time of the transition from Baroque to Classic. Whereas K
