Gramophone Awards 2011 – Naxos wins Orchestral Award for Shostakovich 10th Symphony
October 7, 2011
Naxos is delighted to announce that its recording of Shostakovich 10th symphony with Royal Liverpool Philharmonic/Vasily Petrenko won the Gramophone’s 2011 Orchestral Award. This is the latest accolade for a recording which has already received most of the industry top recommendations and ratings, including ClassicsToday’s 10/10 rating, Fanfare’s “Want List”, BBC Music Magazine’s “Orchestral Choice”, and MusicWeb International’s “Recording of the Year”, Gramophone’s “Editor’s Choice”, and more.
Distributed label Arthaus Musik took home the DVD Documentary award for its “Carlos Kleiber: Traces to Nowhere” about the enigmatic and charismatic conductor. Filmmaker Eric Schulz takes as the starting point for his fascinating documentary Kleiber’s final journey to his home in Slovenia, including along the way recollections by such friends and colleagues as Plácido Domingo, Brigitte Fassbaender and Manfred Honeck.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
