We're almost there. Thursday, October 6 at London's Dorchester Hotel, we'll be unveiling the winners of the 2011 Gramophone Classical Music Awards – and you can follow all the announcements as they are made here at Gramophone Online. In the meantime, do explore the recordings on the shortlist.
Over the last month or so we've been releasing Podcasts in which we've explored the top three discs in each category – and also offering you the chance to hear excerpts from them. To download the Podcasts, or to subscribe for free, visit our iTunes page – you can also stream our Podcasts at our YouTube channel or here on the Awards Podcast page of Gramophone's website.
