Hooray! Shostakovich Symphony no.10 wins Gramophone Awards!

BREAKING NEWS:- It has just been announced that The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s recording of Shostakovich Symphony no.10 has won the best orchestra recording for the second time in three years.

Gramophone UK have made the award to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. This  award winning series of the complete set of Shostakovich’s symphonies is going from strength to strength. Conducted by Vasily Petrenko and recorded for the Naxos label, the tenth symphony has attracted much critical acclaim. The Phil’s Chief Executive, Michael Eakin, said, “…Pleased is an understatement.”

Watch RLPO Principal Percussionist Graham Johns at the 2011 Gramophone Classical Music Awards Ceremony accepting the Orchestral Award from Susan Bullock and James Jolly. Graham was there on behalf of Vasily Petrenko and had to speak following Dame Janet Baker, Sir David Attenborough and Sir Peter Hall… rather nervy!
