Alison Balsom Italian Concertos Review

The purists would shudder of horror in these Italian baroque pieces, none of which had been written on the trumpet (natural trumpet is currently quite unable to play any of them). However, I'm not a purist and I enjoyed the beautiful bouncy songs, played a big sound, polished, the mass flows and the enormous technical structure.

However, even if he is a brilliant, Alison Balsom is MASTER, Maurice André, who simply do not have such software. Contact Tartini. Ms. Balsom plays beautifully, but it sounds a bit sluggish against the magnificent version of Andre 1970 Erato, Nev., where he was paired with Marriner and the spark dell ASMF full. Who can match such a combination? Still, Maurice has never looked anywhere near good cover. Serves him right, I say.
