30 Sep 2013

Barcode: 5099901916225

Composer: Bach / Handel / Torelli / Albinoni

Among the most exciting classical musicians of our time, Alison Balsom was first inspired by Dizzy Gillespie to become a virtuosic trumpet soloist. 'I've spent my whole life trying to show how versatile the trumpet can be,' she says. 'It's only limited by your imagination.'

In this selection from her award-winning albums, she plays gems from the Baroque repertoire on both natural and valved instruments.
