Notes & Reviews:

This album, featuring the beautiful playing of trumpeter Alison Balsom, brings together a recital of Bach works. Ms. Balsom plays the piccolo trumpet and C-trumpet and is accompanied by a group of excellent soloists. Most of the music here is quite familiar, and include several new transcriptions written for this project. The styles range from the virtuosic to the rhapsodic, always with a beautifully pure trumpet sound.

Classic FM Magazine
A disc of arrangements which is impressive on every level. Beautifully mellow playing contrasting with virtuosic moments.

BBC Music Magazine
Gramophone described her Bach album as "splendid stuff" and the pieces "showcase Balsom's phenomenal technique and gleaming expressiveness" ... as a showcase for this young artist's mesmerising virtuosity the disc does its job admirably, and presents some familiar and less familiar Bach in new guises at the same time. The supporting instrumentalists, especially organist Colm Carey, make a sterling contribution...

Gramophone Magazine
Two transposed movements from BWV1008 and a mischievous solo take on the Badinerie (from BWV1067) showcase Balsom's phenomenal technique and gleaming expressiveness. Period-instrument practitioners Alina Ibragimova, Mark Caudle and Alastair Ross provide superb accompaniment in a charismatic version of the Trio Sonata. A surprisingly diverse range of textures and moods makes this disc a beguiling experience.
