Gramophone Awards 2017: Sound the Trumpet!


Iestyn Davies, Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton bring the house down at the 2017 Gramophone Awards

This year's Gramophone Awards ceremony in London will live long in the memory for many reasons, but among the highlights was a live performance by Carolyn Sampson, Iestyn Davies and Joseph Middleton of Purcell's 'Sound the Trumpet' in which the singers engaged in a good-natured bit of one-upmanship. Just listen to the high C that Sampson unleashes 35 seconds in – absolutely glorious!

Iestyn Davies won this year's Baroque Vocal Award and Carolyn Sampson the Gramophone Choral Award.
