Alison Balsom: Vivaldi Violin Concerto



Alison Balsom, on trumpet, performs from Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in A minor, accompanied by the Scottish Ensemble, part of the Italian Concertos. Antonio Vivaldi originally composed this piece for violin during the Baroque Period, and yet Balsom gives a wonderful interpretive performance on a modern valued trumpet. As one reviewer put it: "In the Vivaldi Concerto in A Minor, which Balsom transcribed herself, her bright tone, crisp articulation and tasteful trills make you forget it was originally composed for violin."
