Part of the 2012-2013 Texas Performing Arts Season

Presented in partnership with the Butler School of Music

Virtuoso trumpeter Alison Balsom joins the versatile and ambitious chamber music outfit, The Scottish Ensemble, for an elegant evening of classical bliss.

Recently crowned Female Artist of the Year for the second time at the Classic BRITs, Alison Balsom has cemented an international reputation as one of classical music’s great ambassadors and is ranked among the most distinctive and ground-breaking musicians today.

In 2009, Balsom headlined the last night of the BBC Proms, viewed by an estimated global television audience of 200 million, and in December 2010 Balsom went on to make her U.S. television debut with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s on The Late Show with David Letterman – a platform to which few classical artists have gained access.

Glasgow’s Scottish Ensemble is a tight-knit band of outstanding musicians from Scotland and across Europe who perform regularly together under Artistic Director Jonathan Morton. This increasingly adventurous group has an enviable reputation for innovative commissioning and programming, performing interesting and unusual pieces alongside better-known repertoire.

Geminiani: Concerto grosso No. 12 in D minor “La Follia”

Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto in D minor (soloist Jonathan Morton)

Support for this performance comes from Creative Scotland.

“...the depth of her musicianship…makes her stand out along with the ability to make the solo trumpet seem as natural as a solo violin or cello.”
WQXR RADIO, NEW YORK

“The Scottish Ensemble produces a breathtaking array of intense, precision playing…”
