In the 17th and 18th centuries, the art of trumpet playing was dominated by a small number of fearless virtuoso performers. Exploiting the super-high “clarino” register, these flamboyant trailblazers secured lucrative jobs at Europe’s wealthiest courts, inspiring court and civic composers to write ever more astonishing music for them.

Norwegian sensation Tine Thing Helseth makes her AAM debut alongside AAM principal David Blackadder in a programme that celebrates the power and glory of the baroque trumpet in works from across Europe.
