Esteban Batallán [Trumpetlopnik]

This guy is the new principal trumpet in the Chicago Symphony. The CSO is widely considered one of the greatest orchestras in the world, and to sit in that principal trumpet chair is to fill the seat held for 53 years by the incomparable Adolph Herseth, who set the standard for an entire generation of orchestral trumpet players.

This is absolutely amazing playing. The sound, the musicality, all of it, and at the end, he still has a high C that will drill a hole in your head. Gorgeous.
