05 May – Sounds of the Baroque Trumpet
Trumpeter Alison Balsom and renowned baroque assembly The English Concert will perform together for a recital. Balsom, a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, released her debut album in 2002, and ten more have followed. Among them, Bach Works for Trumpet and Haydn and Hummel Trumpet Concertos were critically acclaimed. Thoroughly praised for her art, Balsom was once the principal trumpet of the London Chamber Orchestra. The programme includes pieces by Locke, Purcell and Handel. The recital will take place at Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall, 8 p.m.
