»The trumpet shall sound!« Is there any instrument better suited to conjuring up the Christmas mood than the trumpet? Probably not! Its jubilant sound and the festive Baroque repertoire, which goes with the trumpet like the star belongs on top of the Christmas tree, supply the ingredients for a truly atmospheric concert. And when award-winning British musician Alison Balsom, feted by audiences and critics alike, is responsible for both the trumpet solos and the programme, then Christmas is upon us! The members of her hand-picked ensemble all come from top London orchestras, and join forces tonight exclusively for this festive concert at Advent.
