This disc, recorded in 1988, was intended to showcase the trumpet playing of John Wallace. He plays on a modern instrument with the Philharmonia Orchestra accompanying. We don't get period performance, but we do get some extremely stylish playing. And some superb trumpet playing. What they are capable of is indicated by the opening Battaglia and Marcia from Handel's Rinaldo. This is followed by the overture from Scarlatti's Il prigionier fortunato which uses four trumpets to quite brilliant effect.
