‘Il Silenzio’ – Melissa Venema (13 yo) playing the trumpet‏

I found this to be hauntingly beautiful. Such a gift this 13-year-old girl has. She plays the trumpet amazingly!

And if you really love the horn, here is a piece of music where it is played and challenged to its highest limits…and done so in a most powerful and majestic manner.  It is Siegfried’s Death and Funeral March from Wagner’s opera Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods), which is the last in a cycle of operas about the Norse gods.  It can stir one’s heart to mutiny and so much else, and is music one might call the ultimate!
