Classical Brit Best Female Artist 2011, Alison Balsom is an acclaimed virtuoso trumpet player.
Twice crowned Female Artist Of The Year’ at the Classical BRIT awards, Alison has earned wide recognition with her distinctive warm sound and chart-topping recordings.
'When the (Baroque trumpet) is played as fluidly agreeably as it is here, nobody could doubt that it is the right tool for the job... Balsom sounds utterly at home, whether intertwining coolly spun traceries with oboe and violin in the wondrous Symphony from King Arthur or merrily disporting in Handel's Water Piece' (Gramophone)
'Her trills and curlicues were indeed astonishing, and in the slow movement of Albinoni's concerto she showed the instrument can also be delicately expressive' (The Daily Telegraph).
'... as you listen to her play, almost no matter what the repertoire, 'expressive' is a word that comes to mind, along with 'lyrical', 'warm', 'articulate', 'seductive' - words easily and often associated with the human voice' (Classics Today)
'... every note is in pin-sharp focus, while her fluent technique elicits exhilarating tempos. No less arresting is her creamy tone...' (The Times).
