Classic FM unveils Alison Balsom 'Paris' track and video clip today

Up-close-and-personal footage of the trumpet star in the studio, recording dreamy music by Satie for her new album.

Revealed on the Classic FM website today: Alison Balsom's new video for her forthcoming album Paris. The opening track from the French-inspired release — Erik Satie's evocative, waltz-like Gymnopédie No.3 in an elegant arrangement for trumpet and shimmering orchestral accompaniment — is the meditative soundtrack to the 2.5-minute clip that feels a little like a montage from a French New Wave film.

Hear the album on the airwaves for the first time on John Suchet's program today after 11am BST. (Better than a midday café crème and baguette.)

Paris is available for pre-order now and officially released 8 September. Preview tracks and find out more here.
