Notes & Reviews:

One of today's most in-demand classical music personalities, English trumpeter and BBC Proms darling Alison Balsom shares her love of Paris on this new solo album. After becoming the first British woman to win Gramophone Magazine's prestigious Artist of the Year award, Alison brings her glamour, poise and dazzling virtuosity to Paris with a selection of music written in and inspired by the most romantic city in the world. Accessible yet surprising at every turn, the program ranges from 20th-century French composers (Ravel, Duruflé, Messiaen) to jazz (Django Reinhardt) and popular chanson française (Joseph Kosma), all in enchanting arrangements for trumpet.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
This potpourri of a recital is...very much of its own time, eclectically flavoured in its collaborative elements and juxtaposition of music languages [sic], and deftly underpinned by Balsom's considered curating.
