During the summer of 2015, leading record and music producer Simon Franglen recorded a new album in Bratislava with comedy actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong and the Slovak National Symphony orchestra. The album which celebrates “Songs of the British Isles” will be released by the Warner Music Label, East West Records.
Armstrong is no stranger to the arts, having been awarded a music scholarship in his youth at Trinity College, Cambridge and he is classically trained as a baritone. His early education also incorporated time spent at St Mary’s Music School in Edinburgh. Singing is not his only musical talent, as he has been known to play the piano, cello and oboe in the past.
