George Frideric Handel had an outstanding trumpeter in his orchestra: Valentine Snow. "Mr. Handel's Trumpeter," as he was later called, inspired Handel to write numerous tailor-made trumpet parts for him. In contrast to his contemporaries, Handel was interested less in virtuosity, than in mellifluous sound and dramatic effect, as reflected in the pieces on this CD. The point of departure for the recording is provided by the trumpet music of Purcell and his contemporaries, music that clearly displays Italian influence and formed the foundation for Handel's compositions.

Alison Balsom must be counted among the most popular Classical trumpeters before the public today. Yet, she has gained wide international recognition only since the turn of the century. Her first recording, Music for Trumpet and Organ, was issued in 2002, and her first major award was given to her in 2006, when the jurors of the Classical BRIT Awards named her Young British Classical Performer. Other awards and citations followed and her concert appearances quickly became major events across England, Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Of course, her supermodel looks and charismatic manner haven't hurt her career, but in the end it has been her talent on the trumpet, forged by an all-encompassing technique and deft interpretive sense, that landed her at the top.

…While his works are often extraordinarily difficult, their virtuosity rises out of a desire to express rather than amaze; here a lightening quick leap of the bow to portray the fury of a princess scorned; there a fiendishly painful trill to mimic diabolical laughter. It is this intense pictorial inward gaze which seems at least as strong as his desire to create ‘brave sport' that sets him somewhat apart from his colleagues…
