Two-time Classic BRITs’ female artist of the year Alison Balsom partners with the Scottish Ensemble, the U.K.’s only professional string orchestra. As an acclaimed trumpeter, Balsom headlined The Last Night of the BBC Proms with an audience viewership of roughly 200 million and has also been seen on The Late Show with David Letterman. She pairs with the Glasgow-based ensemble featuring 12 players who frequently perform at world-class festivals around the world. Under the baton of artistic director Jonathan Morton, the group utilizes new-found perspectives to create distinguished programming in the classical realm. The ensemble combined with Balsom for the 2010 top-selling CD, Italian Concertos.
