Kudos abound with raves from critics all over the world. Named "Female Artist of the Year" twice at the Classic BRITs, hailed by Gramophone magazine, Britain's Classic FM, and The New York Times, she continues to release collectable and stunning performances on the EMI label and to appear in concert and on TV with major orchestras internationally.

Ms. Balsom's 2012 release of modern concertos, Seraph, adds to her repertoire of classical and Baroque composers.
