JAMES MACMILLAN Seraph / TORU TAKEMITSU Paths / ALEXANDER ARUTIUNIAN / BERND ALOIS ZIMMERMANN Trumpet Concertos

£25.00

Product description

Four renowned trumpeter Alison Balsom performs trumpet concertos by Scottish composer James MacMillan (b. 1959), Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996), Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian (b. 1920) and German composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann (1918-1970). There is also an anonymous Negro spiritual, arranged by Tom Poster and Alison Balsom. She is joined by the Scottish Ensemble, leader Jonathan Morton and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Renes.

Fours composers from the last sixty years speak through the trumpet's voice of public celebration and grief. The title work by James MacMillan makes exuberant play with the trumpet as a voice from heaven, while Zimmermann uses negro spirituals, jazz and more to make an eloquent protest against racial division. In between comes Arutiunian's virtuoso showpiece and Takemitu's quiet ceremonial in memory of a fellow composer.
