Crispian Steele-Perkins, who has been described as ‘the world’s leading player on baroque trumpet’, is also renowned for concerto and solo appearances on stage and screen. During his early career he was a symphonic trumpeter and active studio musician with the Sadlers Wells (now English National) Opera and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. His playing reaches millions in the musical soundtracks of films such as A Bridge Too Far, Batman, Ghandi, Jaws and James Bond, and with his signature tunes of television programmes like Dispatches and The Antiques Roadshow. He has always enjoyed giving recitals of music for trumpet and organ, using many of his own arrangements (as on this recording) to show the capabilities of instruments played in former centuries.
