And the winner is.... (BBC Music Magazine winners)
The Winners of the BBC Music Magazine awards have been announced. Andsnes Beethoven Piano Concertos triumphed overall.
Joyce di Donato's magical Stella di Napoli, collection of often previously-unheard bel canto arias won the vocal award - and they really are sublime. The audio version of the Glyndebourne Mesitersinger won in opera -which will only heighten excitement about the production's revival next summer- and doubtless demand for tickets. Phillippe Béziat's film Becoming Traviata won in DVD, which is I believe, a creative take on Verdi's opera.
The full details are at Presto Classical, where you can also obtain healthy discounts until June.
