With an album of celebration - both joyful and solemn - trumpeter Alison Balsom again declares her love for the baroque era, which she calls “the golden age of the trumpet”. Joining Handel's exuberant Music for the Royal Fireworks are works by two other German-born composers - JS Bach and Telemann - and by the London-born Henry Purcell. “These baroque composers knew the instrument they were writing for,” says Balsom. “There is such value in searching out the sound that they would have heard themselves, with the intention of authenticity. When it comes together it is utterly thrilling.”
