Orchestra of the Year 2022: The Nominees Part 2
Friday, July 22, 2022
We focus of the remaining five ensembles vying to be Orchestra of the Year 2022
Now in its fifth year, Gramophone's Orchestra of the Year Award is the only prize voted on by music lovers. Following awards made to the Seattle Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Philadelphia and Minnesota orchestras, we're once again asking you to pick our 2022 ensemble. To help you decide James Jolly spoke to two of Gramophone's regular contributors about five orchestras each, and in this second of two podcasts, Andrew Mellor gives his perspective on ensembles from Hungary, France, Norway, the UK and one that draws its players for over 40 different nationalities.
The Orchestra of the Year Award is presented in association with Apple Music, and you can listen to complete recordings of the works discussed in the special lossless playlist further down this page.
