“The world's leading exponent of the Baroque Trumpet” Virtuoso magazine
Crispian has performed with some of the world's greatest singers, such as Kiri te Kanawa, Emma Kirkby and Bryn Terfel. He has also recorded with popular artists including Led Zeppelin, Kate Bush, Lulu, Cliff Richard, Bob Geldof and Harry Secombe. His largest live audience was 133,000 at the Edinburgh International Festival.
Crispian collects and restores antique trumpets, upon which he has performed and recorded with The Academy of Ancient Music, The King’s Consort and The English Baroque Soloists.
Appropriately, he plays the theme tune to one of the BBC’s longest-running and most popular TV programmes, Antiques Roadshow.
This concert coincides with the Cambridge Woodwind Makers’ baroque trumpet-making course.
