The set starts off with the one new piece, written by James MacMillan and dedicated to Alison Balsom. I'm generally not a huge MacMillan fan, as I feel he is often too intense and over-indulgent for my taste; but this three-movement trumpet concerto entited 'Seraph' is really good. Yes, its got MacMillan's trademark big intervals and dissonant structures, but he's given us enough tune to hang our hat on. There are several passages that must have taken every last breath and required extreme practise and precision. It works well, with the trumpet and Scottish Ensemble never at odds with one another.
Next is a piece by Toru Takemitsu for solo trumpet, inserted by Alison as a palette-cleanser after the concerto. Takemitsu's piece explores the range of the trumpet, from soft muted phrases to boldness. Like much of his work, it has a beautiful structure and gently touches the heart.
Alexander Arutiunian's Trumpet Concerto is full of lively energetic rhythms and calls for huge amounts of virtuosic playing, which Alison delivers by the bucketful.Read more ›
