Recensie



Met dit crossover album markeert Alison Balson (1978) het al eerder
aangekondigde afscheid van alleen het klassieke repertoire als kern van
haar tot nu toe uitgebrachte albums. Een verstandige keuze van deze
veelzijdige trompettiste waarmee zij bewijst thuis te zijn in een nog
breder scala van muzikale mogelijkheden.
Met de romantische lichtstad Parijs als inspiratiebron brengt Alison met
haar glamour, evenwicht en verbluffende virtuositeit een zeer
toegankelijk programma dat varieert van 20e-eeuwse Franse componisten
(Satie, Ravel, Messiaen) tot aan jazz (Django Reinhardt) en zelfs nog
een populair Frans chanson
De betoverende trompetarrangementen illustreren de flexibiliteit en
expressiviteit van haar instrument, ondersteund door het jazzorkest van
Guy Barker.
Met bijdragen van onder meer de gitarist Miloš Karadaglić levert
Alison wederom een magnifiek album af.

The Guy Barker Orchestra, Guy Barker

An ‘astonishing virtuosa’ (The Times) with ‘limitless potential’ (The Guardian), Alison Balsom is a multi-faceted trumpet player involved in a broad range of musical projects. The pieces on this collection inhabit a common Parisian musical world, but the voices that emerge from them are incredibly varied. From Ravel to Reinhardt, Balsom illustrates the flexibility and expressiveness of her instrument, supported by the orchestra of jazz composer and trumpeter Guy Barker.

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.

This album marks a major departure for Alison Balsom from the core classical repertoire, with which she has established her distinguished recording and performing career to date, to a crossover album, taking inspiration from a number of different artists and influences. The concept of the album is Paris as seen by artists and composers as diverse as Olivier Messiaen, Astor Piazzolla, Django Rheinardt and Cole Porter. In collaboration with Guy Barker – a trumpeter who has worked with the biggest names in the business, and with a solid reputation in the jazz world – Alison reinterprets the greatest music written about in and about Paris. With guest artists Miloš Karadaglić, and Julian Ovenden on a bonus track available on iTunes, this album is sure to position Alison amongst the top-selling classical artists with mainstream appeal and broad recognition.
