alison balsom lanterne of light.


  • Beethoven Symphony No. 236′
  • Barker  Trumpet Concerto (Lanterne of Light) 27′
  • Dvořák Symphony No. 836′

Some musical pleasures feel positively sinful. But with Alison Balsom as soloist, you needn’t have any qualms about enjoying Guy Barker’s deliciously jazzy celebration of the Seven Deadly Sins. And symphonies simply don’t get any sunnier than Beethoven’s Second – except maybe Dvořák’s Eighth! Village bands, singing birds and hummable tunes, delivered with wit, flair and irresistible charm by the young British conductor Ben Gernon.

Part of The Spirit of England.
