5.0 out of 5 stars Alison Balsom, Bach - Works for Trumpet 11 July 2006
By Mart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Released in January 2006, this is the second CD from Alison Balsom - the third if you include The fam'd Italian master' released on the Hyperion label in 2003, which was music performed by various brass players and The Parley of Instruments group.

The title itself is interesting. It suggests that all the works are written by Bach, but this is only partially true, and none of them were originally scored for the trumpet. In fact, Bach wrote no works specifically for solo trumpet, only pieces such as the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 can be found as possible examples of Bach's affinity to the instrument. The two pieces not wholly Bach are the concerto in D, written as a violin concerto by Vivaldi, and the concerto in C minor by Marcello. Bach's contribution was to transcribe these pieces from their original orchestral arrangement to a solo harpsichord work. The further transcription to trumpet not only adds a further chapter to the history of these pieces, but presents them in a way which I think both Bach and Vivaldi would wholeheartedly approve.

The two concertos are amongst my favourites of this disc, in particular the beautifully arranged and performed presto from Marcello's C minor concerto. My clear favourite however is track 17, the soaring third movement from the concerto in C, written originally as a harpsichord concerto (BWV 1055). This is Bach at his finest, and the precision playing, of organ as well as Alison's trumpet, produces work of almost regal or ceremonial feel.

Other works such as the cello suite no.2, and badinerie from orchestral suite no. 2 are familiar favourites and will make the music more immediately accessible to the listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully uplifting 24 Aug 2011
By Petra Bryce VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I love Baroque music for trumpet, and Alison Balsom captures the playfulness of it beautifully. All the pieces on this CD are adaptations for trumpet from Bach's chamber music (as well as arrangements that Bach had adapted himself from pieces by Vivaldi and Marcello), accompanied very effectively by Colm Carey on the organ, Alina Ibragimova on violin, Alistair Ross on harpsichord and chamber organ, and Mark Caudle on viola da gamba. By combining modern trumpet with organ, these pieces open up another dimension in one's listening experience and enjoyment of music; purists might be skeptical about it, but it is definitely worth listening to. Showing consummate skill, Alison Balsom plays each note crisply and clearly with perfect control, and as someone who used to play the trumpet myself, I know that this is by no means an easy task. My particular favourites are the allegro of the concerto in D, the largo of the concerto in C minor, and the badinerie from the orchestral suite no. 2.

All too often we make the mistake of having music on in the background, whilst doing the housework for example, but this CD deserves to be listened to without distractions. Wonderfully uplifting, it will improve any rainy day. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bach Works for Trumpet - Alison Balsom 14 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
My choice for Classical CD of the Year - and it's only January! This is an awesome display of the art of trumpet playing, a combination of musicality and virtuosity of the highest standar. The music chosen displays her remarkable technique throughout the range of the instrument. and the various accompanying artists contribute to making this a memorable recording. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb performance 8 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alison Balsom is recognized rightly for having brought the trumpet to prominence as a classical instrument. She brings the range of the instrument to previously unreached levels - a delight to listen to her playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Singist 12 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yet another beautiful CD from Alison Balsom. This is perfect Sunday breakfast music, or late night, or any time anywhere. The playing is clear and precise and the pianissimi playing is superb, controlled and perfect, but then I'm a fan - and who wouldn't be - of this consummate artist.
