Balsom, Alison. Music for Trumpet & Organ

This is the first CD from Alison Balsom who was earlier this year awarded winner of the Young British Classical Performer of 2006. Recorded in 2002 it consists of a collection of eight pieces of music spanning some five centuries - from the Baroque era of Bach, Purcell & Sweelinck to the relatively contemporary music of Petr Eben. Quentin Thomas provides the organ accompaniment to Alison's various instruments used throughout this recording including natural trumpet, piccolo trumpet and flugelhorn.

This may seem a wide range of music to put on one disc, but to me the organ / trumpet instrument pairing has always suggested a somewhat timeless feel which has enabled the compositions of the Baroque period to sit comfortably with the modern day works for these instruments. Both the organ and trumpet have a purity of sound, a suggestion of importance and occasion which pairs the instruments so well.

The music chosen by Alison for this debut disc cannot be faulted. The opening track from Sweelinck's Variations is beautifully performed and is a great example of how composers of the Renaissance / Baroque period could take a relatively simple theme and work it into a masterpiece. For me this is a first rate piece of music which has become one of my favourites on this disc.

The disc continues with Bach's Allemande (originally scored for solo violin), Purcell's King Arthur, and a lovely traditional piece called Shenandoah for solo trumpet.

The music starts to get contemporary with Henri Tomasi's Semaine Saint a Cuzco (Holy Week in Cuzco), continuing with Massiaen's Vocalise-Etude.

The disc concludes with Petr Eben's Windows, and it is this piece that offers the greatest challenge to the listener.

Alison's an incredible trumpet player with an incredibly beautiful sound. Trumpet players everywhere should buy this for some absolutely stunning playing, interesting pieces and inspiration. A real celebration of the capabilities of the trumpet. The crossover of repetoire into music originally written for violin just works so well with Alison's playing. That sound gives me goosebumps. I really like the variety on this CD. All this from a radiohead fan.

...good, in parts.

If I were giving stars for the performance, I would give an entire galaxy. Ms. Balsom's mastery of not only the usual trumpet and flugelhorn, but also the wicked little piccolo trumpet and the valveless natual instrument, are extraordinary - wonderful sound and flawless technique.

The problem is the music. The first pieces (Sweelinck, Bach, Purcell and a nice flugelhorn rendition of "Shenandoah") are great. But, alas, the final pieces are modern, meaning (to my ears anyway), strange, discordant things very useful for scaring the neighbours' cats out of our garden, but not much else. This, I realise, is a very personal opinion, and if you like modern music, this is worthy of five stars. I don't, and sadly can't.

I bought the Caprice CD, and added this one because it was Balsom.
I'd like to say it was full of bright, varied and sparkling tracks which held my interest from start to finish. But I don't tell lies.
Probably a technically well executed piece of work, but I found a lot of 'sameness' about all the tracks, which were in the main drab and uninspiring. Maybe trumpet and organ are not an ideal match, like me and this CD. Sorry Alison, but I have got tickets for your Manchester Concert.

First half of CD, very enjoyable. Second half, very modern & discordant tracks. Not my thing!
Would advise reading content before buying.
