Possessing an extraordinarily brilliant technique, a luminous stage presence, and deeply-felt musicality, Alison Balsom has done more than anyone in recent years to demonstrate the trumpet’s popularity as a solo instrument. In this concert Balsom (Gramophone Artist of the Year 2013) explores the grandeur of baroque music. In addition to a work originally written for trumpet by Tartini, she includes arrangements of two lively and popular concertos by Albinoni and Vivaldi. She is accompanied by a superb orchestra with which she has a particularly warm and close relationship.
This concert will finish at approximately 4.50pm
