Trumpeter Alison Balsom on Crossover
This week on Crossover, it's an encore featuring British trumpeter Alison Balsom. A mixture of glamor, charisma, and virtuosic musicianship aptly describes Ms. Balsom. Kudos abound with raves from critics all over the world. Named "Female Artist of the Year" twice at the Classic BRITs, hailed by Gramophone magazine, Britain's Classic FM, and The New York Times, she continues to release collectable and stunning performances on the EMI label and to appear in concert and on TV with major orchestras internationally. Ms. Balsom's recent CD of modern concertos, Seraph, adds to her repertoire of classical and Baroque composers.
