We are excited to introduce a brand new Gramophone Award this year, one which will be voted for by our readers: Orchestra of the Year.
A shortlist of eight ensembles, including symphony orchestras and period groups, have been selected, based on their outstanding work on record during the 12-month voting period (June 2017 to May 2018). You can find out more about why each of the orchestras has been shortlisted by selecting their name below...
