Musicians have proven themselves over the years by tackling the most challenging songs written for their particular instrument. One of the world’s most famous classical trumpet pieces is the ‘Haydn Trumpet Concerto in E-flat major,’ and Alison Balsom nails it.
Alison is an English trumpet soloist who also arranges, produces, and teaches music. She was awarded ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2013 and has won three ‘Classic BRIT Awards’ and three ‘German Echo Awards.’
Her skills are amazingly displayed during the trumpet concerto, composed by Joseph Haydn in 1796 for trumpet virtuoso Anton Weidinger. It is one of Haydn’s most famous pieces in his career.
Alison wears a brown dress and holds a silver trumpet as she steps in front of the whole orchestra. She shakes hands with the conductor and bows while smiling at the audience. People wave British flags in the crowd as they applaud.
Alison stands in front and plays into the microphone while soloing the entire song. It is unbelievable how she can control her nerves and breathing to put that much air into the trumpet.
Her tone is beautiful, and she hits every note with perfection. Alison ends the famous concerto with a long, high note, and the orchestra backs her for one big finish. The crowd goes wild with applause, respecting Alison’s talent and performance.
The amount of effort and practice Alison puts into performing at such a high level is admirable. For years, she has perfected her playing so she can deliver a performance cherished by music fans.
