“Bold as Brass in a Man’s World” (euronews)
Alison Balsom has an international reputation as one of classical music’s great ambassadors. She plays on an unusual instrument for a soloist (the trumpet), specially as a woman. She was crowned “Best Young British Performer” at the famous Classical BRIT Awards, in 2006 and “Female Artist of the Year” in 2009.
“She looked like a model who’d just been handed a trumpet for some kinky fashion shoot but played Haydn, Piazzolla, and Gershwin with knowing style and great finesse.”
Edward Seckerson, The Independent
“She makes the trumpet sing with an irresistible exuberance and eloquence.”
Richard Morrison, The Times
