New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Giuseppe Galante, an Italian-born trumpet virtuoso, has published his rendition of Johann Ernst Altenburg's "Concerto for 7 Trumpets and Timpani, Movement 1 Allegro." The piece itself is gloriously bright and delicately heroic, with little to obstruct Galante's masterful playing, making it a perfect selection with which Galante may showcase his titanic capabilities. Light and airy, Galante's treatment of Altenburg is perfectly performed with surgical precision, breathing new, golden life into this 18th-century opus of German composition.

Galante was first introduced to music through his father, Rosario, who played clarinet in the Italian Army. However, it was not until he won a Most-Improved Instrumentalist award in seventh grade that included an album by the legendary French trumpeter, Maurice Andre, that he became absolutely inspired to conquer the instrument. Galante has said that he considers Andre to be the greatest trumpeter in the history of brass, and that he represents the only real artistic influence on Galante himself.

Galante graduated from the Crane School of Music and was awarded accolades there, also, including his Performer's Certificate in Trumpet for Superior Performance, as well as The Certificate of Merit for Superior Contributions. He was selected by the Crane School for their Concerto Program, where he was selected to perform Albinoni's "Concerto in D-Minor" with the Crane Symphony. He was also honored with the chance to perform the first movement of Tartini's "Trumpet Concerto" in concert and on tour with the Crane School's Wind Ensemble.

Giuseppe Galante has also performed with the Artpark Orchestra, the Gotham Brass Quintet, the Hutchinson River Chamber Players, and the Norwalk Symphony. Since 1989, he has been instructing the youth of today in music, and has stated clearly that this represents to him a most honorable profession. He, himself has studied trumpet under Clarke Elliot, Dr. Manuel Alvarez, Sherman Lyke, Dr. Michael Tunnell, Everett McCurdy, Dr. John Ellis, David Kuehn, and Edward Treutel.

Giuseppe Galante's "Concerto for 7 Trumpets and Timpani, Movement 1 Allegro" by Altenburg is available online everywhere beginning February 13, 2013.

The single "Altenburg's Concerto for 7 Trumpets and Timpani, Movement 1 Allegro" is distributed globally by MondoTunes ( and is available at iTunes or for convenient purchase and download.
