Superstar Alison Balsom performs a virtuosic programme of music from Purcell to Birtwistle via Scarlatti, celebrating the remarkable voice of the trumpet.

Britten Sinfonia and Alison Balsom join forces for a very special programme of music exploring more than 300 years of composition. Ancient and contemporary influences are intertwined, with arrangements of Purcell by some of the greatest composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, including the world premiere of John Woolrich’s Hark! The echoing air, a new trumpet concerto inspired by Purcell’s The Fairy-Queen.

Milton Court Artist-in-Residence Alison Balsom is one of classical music’s most persuasive and engaging ambassadors, as well as a passionate advocate for her instrument, involved in transcribing, arranging and commissioning new trumpet works. She is acclaimed as one of the most ground-breaking musicians on the international circuit today, winning numerous awards including three classical BRITs and Gramophone Artist of the Year.
