5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 8 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I purchased this CD I was not expecting it to be as good as it turned out to be. I have the two main works (Haydn and Hummel) played by Haken Hardenberger (who I belive has been a teacher of Alison Balsom), and I didn't think it was possible to improve on this, but I was wrong! Alison Balsom plays both works every bit as good, and manages to extract more contrast and tone colour from her instrument. It is Alison Balsom's disc which will played much more frequently than the earlier recording. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific trumpet concertos 21 Mar 2009
By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent disc of four of the standard works in the trumpet repertoire, and the Haydn and Hummel concertos particularly are very fine works indeed. With her performances here Alison Balsom shows us why she has made such a stir in the musical world with her freshness, verve, tenderness and a beautiful tone. The lovely, sharp clarity of the sparkling vigorous passages is a joy but what I really loved most was the tender, beautifully phrased slow movements of both the Haydn and the Hummel concertos. It is here that Balsom shows her real control and unflashy virtuosity, and they are truly excellent. The orchestral playing is top-notch, too. Jonathan Freeman-Attwood's liner notes are well written and informative, and the recorded sound is excellent.

This disc confirms Alison Balsom as a musician of the first rank and is worth buying even if you already own other recordings of these works. It's terrific, and I recommend it in the warmest terms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing ! 2 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
The best rendering of Hummels trumpetconcerto I've heard. Alison Balsoms playing reminds me Maurice André playing..renewed. BUT I don't think this could have been possible without Deutche Kammerphilharmonie from Bremen.
Balsom and the orchestra are equals in the art of music, the balance is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars A. Balsom: Haydn's Trumpet Concerto 6 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is superb. The best rendering I know of this very difficult piece. Just listen to the tonguing! Alison Balsom is becoming the best trumpeter on the circuit.
Wonderful to watch too, if you're ever lucky enough to be where she's playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime trumpet playing 28 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
Alison Balsom has it all - and good luck to her! I have seen her performing this piece twice now - once with the BSO and at the Last Night of the Proms in 2009. She lives every note and its a perfect rendition of the work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trumpet Treat 8 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who enjoys the trumpet this is a must have CD. Alison Balsom is a very, very talented player and this is evident in the performance. It is very evident that she is completely at one with the orchestra and enjoys every moment of the performance.
