Reviews

'Beautifully lyrical trumpet-playing' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Fascinating … Crispian Steele-Perkins and Alison Balsom play with an assured virtuosity' (The Daily Telegraph)

'It comes as no surprise to have a well researched, well presented and beautifully played issue from this team of artists and recording company. The trumpeters, representing the pioneering and the newest generations of players, are well matched and sparkling in their duets and share the solo works equally. It scarcely needs it, but this gets the warmest of recommendations' (Early Music Review)

'Soloists Crispian Steele-Perkins and Alison Balsam play with utmost delicacy and control' (Early Music Today)

'exemplary performances … The disc as a whole is not only extremely enjoyable in its own right, but is of value for illuminating a major development in the history of instrumental music' (Goldberg)

'Steele-Perkins and Balsom play throughout this recording as robustly and as sensitively as one could wish … Buy this disc' (Early Music)
We do not know where and when Vivaldi wrote his well-known concerto, his only work for trumpets and strings. It is similar in idiom to some Bologna works, though it is in C major rather than D major—a distinctive feature found in other works by Vivaldi with trumpet.

from notes by Peter Holman © 2003

On ignore où et quand Vivaldi écrivit son célèbre Concerto, sa seule œuvre pour trompettes et cordes. D’un style similaire à celui des œuvres bolognaises, il est néanmoins conçu en ut majeur plutôt qu’en ré majeur—un trait particulier qui apparaît dans d’autres pages pour trompette de Vivaldi.

Français: Isabelle Battioni

Wir wissen nicht, wo und wann Vivaldi sein bekanntes Konzert komponiert hat, sein einziges für Trompeten und Streicher. Es bedient sich eines ähnlichen Idioms wie einige der Werke aus Bologna, steht jedoch in C-Dur anstatt D-Dur—eine Besonderheit, die bei Vivaldi auch in anderen Werken mit Trompete zu finden ist.
