Alison Balsom (trumpet)

“I realised from early on that it wasn’t just a trumpet, it was a voice that could seemingly do anything … It can have such fabulous colours, be so versatile, and make such a beautiful sound. I will vigorously defend it for the rest of my life.” Alison Balsom is a passionate and eloquent advocate for her instrument and its creative possibilities – and for cultivating a rich and diverse repertoire. Her phenomenal range as a virtuoso and an interpreter can be experienced to the full with Magic Trumpet. Embracing 20 pieces whose timeline runs from the splendour of the Baroque era to the popular idioms of the 20th century, Magic Trumpet confirms just why The Sunday Times has written: “The music is glorious; so is Balsom’s artistry.”
