Caprice Customer Reviews
||An unexpetedly delightful find.|
I'm glad to have the opportunity to rave about this CD. To complete my dad's Christmas present, I was looking for a couple of other CDs. Since they were on back order, I kept looking and came across this CD. It turned out to be the best surprise of this season's shopping. Balsom is a brilliant player. I truly appreciate her musicality and the careful effort that went into find less frequent literature. The flow from one title to the next makes complete musical sense. She brings it all to life. I look forward to her next CDs.

||Love me, love my trumpet!|
As an amateur trumpet player of rather indifferent ability, I could only listen in awe at Alison Balsom's virtuosity - she is brilliant! The liner notes refer to this recording as a 'recital' rather than an 'album', and that's about right - it is an eclectic variety of pieces, spanning several centuries, chosen and arranged to show off Ms Balsom's considerable talent. My reasons for given four stars, rather than five, have nothing to do with the soloist but are matters of personal taste. Firstly, I'm not overly fond of compilations of such diverse music styles, and secondly I believe the backing orchestra could have shown a bit more vibrancy.

||A consumate artist|
A consumate artist, her version of libertango has to be heard to be believed.
