Introduction: BRANDENBURGER REMIXED as a "Homage 300 years Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 by J.S. Bach" sets the sound of trumpet in the foreground, because this central work of music history may be seen as the Mount Everest of literature for high trumpet. In the historically exact instrumentation, themes and motifs of J.S. Bach are taken over, continued and also contrasted with completely different sound material. With the repetitive stylistic devices of modern minimal music a rhythmic basic pulse is created, which reminds of the current technique of "remix". This rejuvenates the Brandenburg Concerto, and retains at the same time the concertante motor skills and vitality of the original. "Happy Birthday, Mr Bach, - you are the greatest!"

Dedication: Cordially dedicated to Otto Sauter who had the idea for composing this concerto
