The Gramophone Awards 2010 have now been announced!
From the thousands of CDs and DVDs released over the past 12 months, Gramophone’s panel of critics selected the winners in each of the 16 categories, from which a smaller panel of critics then chose the Recording of the Year: “Infelix Ego”, the 13th (and final) volume of the Byrd Edition, performed by the British vocal ensemble The Cardinall’s Musick under Andrew Carwood, on Hyperion.
You can read full reviews of all of the winning discs - and of the other two discs in each category shortlist - below, along with the details of the Special Awards, including Lifetime Achievement, Artist of the Year and Label of the Year.
You can listen to excerpts from these recordings – plus much more – on the new Gramophone Player (see "Launch The Gramophone Player" box, right)!
Gramophone has teamed up with a host of record retailers to promote this year’s Gramohone Award winners. Here are links to retailers featuring the winning discs – simply click and visit your preferred retailer.
