The Gramophone Awards were a hugely enjoyable celebration of great recordings and magnificent artists. It is only a shame that all of our readers couldn’t celebrate with us – but now, in a way, you can. Because this year we have filmed the Awards and made the record prizes available for you to view on the Gramophone Player.
So click on the “Launch the Gramophone Player” box on the right and join James Jolly, Joyce DiDonato, Sir Mark Elder, Mark Padmore and many others for the Gramophone Awards! (You will need to be logged in. If you are not yet a registered user, it's free and easy to sign up - click the link above the search box, top-right.)
Each video includes a link through to the Gramophone review of the recording, which in turn has a link through to a retailer. Below is a video of highlights from the ceremony (with thanks to Adrian Chandler and La Serenissima, and Avie, for the music - taken from the winning album in the Baroque Instrumental category, 'The French Connection'). Log on to the Player to see the other videos!
