2016 album from the acclaimed trumpeter. Alison Balsom has a rich Warner Classics catalogue, but this is her first CD recital with piano - here played by her long-standing recital partner, Tom Poster. Balsom describes the program as embracing "the most important repertoire for trumpet and piano" - taking a fascinating journey through 20th century works by such composers as Enescu, Hindemith, Martinu, Francaix, Bernstein and Maxwell Davies. That being said, the final piece - preceding 'American Songbook' encores by Gershwin and Kern - dates from the 21st century and was composed by the team of Balsom and Poster themselves. Called The Thoughts of Dr. May, it is inspired by another British musician: Brain May, lead guitarist of the rock band Queen - and also, as it happens, an astrophysicist. The recital was recorded live in London.
