Gramophone | Awards issue 2021
In the Awards issue of Gramophone, on sale from October 6, we bring you a full report of the biggest classical event of the year – the Gramophone Awards 2021.
We name the 11 category winners, and invite a critic to assess each one – which qualities make these recordings such worthy winners? We also reveal the recipients of our highly anticipated special awards, including Orchestra of the Year – the only category voted for by the public – and announce the much-coveted Recording of the Year.
Elsewhere, David Vickers surveys the available recordings of Purcell’s opera King Arthur and names his favourite – plus, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases on CD, DVD and download – with the best being crowned ‘Editor’s Choice’.
