Behind the Chamber: The Virtuoso Trumpet


Héctor Tomás Jiménez and his trumpet

You have probably already fallen in love with this season of the Camerata Gordon Campbell. Both Daniela Liberman on piano and Mozart and his Women were terrific. This Sunday, January 18, will be the first Camerata event this year in Casa Haas. The noon performance of “The Virtuoso Trumpet” is already sold out, but there are still tickets available for the 6 pm event.

Héctor Tomás Jiménez, a Mije Indian who grew up learning to play in Oaxaca on a horn donated by US Americans, is one of Mexico’s premier concert trumpeters. The serendipity, that Maestro Gordon Campbell, Director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Sinaloa de las Artes, encouraged a woman to gather instruments for a Oaxaqueñan band that needed them, and, years later, that a musician who learned on one of those donated instruments is playing under Gordon’s baton, is beautiful.

Below is a Behind the Chamber clip about this Sunday’s concert, from an interview Greg and I recently conducted with Maestro Gordon Campbell and his wife and collaborator, Guianeya Román.

Buy your tickets at the Angela Peralta box office or online.
