Notes & Reviews:

A nicely varied program of late 17th and early 18th Century Italian works for all sorts of combinations of trumpets, strings, and continuo. Crispian Steele-Perkins has long been recognized as the leading English baroque-trumpet specialist, and his recordings in recent years have only become more and more beautiful. Here he teams up with a newcomer to the scene, Alison Balsom. They work together seamlessly in two-trumpet works by Lazzari, Melani, and the famous one by Vivaldi." - ARG

'It comes as no surprise to have a well researched, well presented and beautifully played issue from this team of artists and recording company. The trumpeters, representing the pioneering and the newest generations of players, are well matched and sparkling in their duets and share the solo works equally. It scarcely needs it, but this gets the warmest of recommendations' (Early Music Review)

'Fascinating... Crispian Steele-Perkins and Alison Balsom play with an assured virtuosity' (Daily Telegraph)

'beautifully lyrical trumpet-playing' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Steele-Perkins and Balsom play throughout this recording as robustly and as sensitively as one could wish... Buy this disc' (Early Music News)

'exemplary performances... The disc as a whole is not only extremely enjoyable in its own right, but is of value for illuminating a major development in the history of instrumental music' (Goldberg)

'Soloists Crispian Steele-Perkins and Alison Balsam play with utmost delicacy and control' (Early Music Today)
