As a Hamburg-based musician Matthias Höfs has a special relationship with Georg Philipp Telemann, who was a very successful composer of operas at the city’s opera house on the Gänsemarkt. As director of music for the five parish churches of Hamburg, Telemann made a decisive contribution to the sacred music performed at those institutions. And it has not taken the 250th anniversary of his death, on June 25, 2017, for Telemann to be acknowledged as one of the most efficacious Baroque composers alongside J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel. Matthias Höfs played solo trumpet in opera for 16 years with the Philharmonic State Orchestra of Hamburg and now gives concerts all over the world, enjoying an acclaimed reputation. On his new release the star trumpeter presents works by Telemann together with the estimable Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.

Top reviews from other countries
The sonatas feature a trumpet in higher register, and are not works written for any particular instrument. They sound fine here.
Other than this disc, recent releases include Telemann: Trumpet & Horn Concertos
There is only one concerto overlap there and here. I suggest getting both. It fills in with horn concertos, also hard to find with period instruments.
