The Classic FM Chart - 21 September 2014, 5pm

The trumpeter Alison Balsom shoots straight in to the top spot with her album, 'Paris'

The Classic FM Chart has a brand new No.1. Alison Balsom's superb new album, Paris.  

The trumpeter spent an important period of her life at the Paris Conservatoire and, in this album, has pulled together a set of unusual pieces that range from great 20th-century French composers - including Ravel, Duruflé and Messiaen - to jazz maestro Django Reinhardt and popular chanson française.
