Stunning debut

A highly acclaimed artist and one of music’s great ambassadors, Alison Balsom was named Best Young British Performer at the 2006 Classical BRITs and was honoured with the Classic FM Listener’s Award at the September 2006 Gramophone Awards. In 2007 the Echo Klassik Awards hailed her “Rising Artist of the Year and in 2009 she became the first Briton ever to be crowned “Female Artist of the Year” at the Classical BRITs.

Whilst represented by the Young Concert Artists Trust, Alison caught the ear of EMI Classics, with whom she records exclusively. Her internationally celebrated Bach Trumpet and Organ disc of 2005 was quickly followed by the Caprice album which won her further critical acclaim. Alison’s most recent recording which includes the gems of the trumpet repertoire, the Haydn and Hummel’s Trumpet Concertos was named among the 24 records of 2008 by the New York Times.

‘The EMI Debut series has now been successful in drawing a number of exceptionally promising young artists to public attention, amongst them Thomas Adès and, more recently (and currently particularly newsworthy) the bass-baritone Jonathan Lemalu, hailed by some as the next Bryn Terfel and having just picked up a Gramophone award for best debut disc. (…) Alison Balsom is a player we are likely to hear considerably more from in the coming years and this debut disc will do much to galvanise her already growing reputation.’ (MusicWeb International)

“She makes the trumpet sing with an irresistible exuberance and eloquence.” (Richard Morrison, The Times)
