Soloist, curator and cultural figurehead, trumpeter Alison Balsom is one of today’s highest-profile musicians. For this performance she and her hand-picked ensemble play a selection of baroque concertos and orchestral works including the solemnity of Purcell’s funeral sentences, extracts from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and the regal pomp of Handel’s famous Fireworks music.
Featuring some of the highlights of the baroque repertoire, this is an evening crowned by Balsom’s soaring elegance and dizzying virtuosity.
