WINNER: CATEGORY LABEL OF THE YEAR
ICMA: "The Dutch label Pentatone does not limit itself to a specific period or genre, but releases great recordings of music from Baroque to the 21th century. Paying special attention to the quality of the recording process, the label offers both Vinyl and Hybrid SACD with deep and spacious sound of the highest quality. Its releases are appreciated not only for the extraordinary level of the interpretations but also for their modern and elegant design."

Complete Symphonies (5CD)
Ludwig van Beethoven
Complete Symphonies
Sara Swietlicki, Morten Grove Frandsen, Ilker Arcayürek, Lars Møller
Danish National Concert Choir
Danish Chamber Orchestra
Adam Fischer

ICMA: "Adam Fischer and the Danish Chamber Orchestra present a very convincing, coherent and meaningful set of Beethoven’s symphonies whose main characteristic is the rhetorical diversity showing all Beethoven’s various facets. This eloquence is achieved with a consistently slender, low-vibrato music-making and a wide range of tempi, rhythm and dynamics. Exciting contrasts, powerful accents, expressive rubato let Beethoven ‘speak’ in a most persuasive way."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY VOCAL MUSIC
Franz Schubert: Winterreise
Ian Bostridge, Thomas Adès

ICMA: "Ian Bostridge’s third recording of Schubert’s Winterreise shows many developments in the singer’s view of this cycle. Bostridge’s voice is richer now, and in the lower range also darker, which allows more colours and a correspondingly greater expressive potential to make every important word meaningful. Supported by Thomas Adès, who fully shares his emotional view, Bostridge succeeds in creating a rare unity of the music by combining the individual songs into a single trajectory of thought. He is fully immersed in the devastating melancholy and merciless irony of Schubert’s music."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY CHORAL MUSIC
Piotr Tchaikovsky: Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom – Nine Sacred Choruses
Latvian Radio Choir
Sigvards Klava

ICMA: "The violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cédric Tiberghien are a consistently impressive musical duo. In this recording devoted to French and Belgian composers, they revisit the famous Sonata of César Franck and also let us discover rarer scores by Louis Vierne and Eugène Ysaÿe. The entire programme shows the deep musicality of Ibragimova and Tiberghien. Their lovely performances are tasteful and stylish."

Danaé Monnié, Enguerrand de Hys, Karine Deshayes
Les Chantres du Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles
Les Talens Lyriques
Christophe Rousset

ICMA: "Christoph Rousset’s recording of Salieri’s Tarare is characterized by strong dramatic musical flow and full of a splendid virtuosity that is absolutely essential in an 18th century opera. The orchestra as well as the singers convey plenty of esprit and finesse, with results that make the recording very impressive and highly recommendable. In such a performance, this revival of one of the most important operas of its time is a real revelation."

Dusapin: Penthesilea
Georg Nigl, Natascha Petrinsky, Marisol Montalvo, Werner van Mechelen,
Eve-Maud Hubeau, Wiard Withol, Yaroslava Kozin, Marta Baretta
Orchestre Symphonique et Chœurs de la MonnaieFranck Ollu

ICMA: "In Penthesilea, Pascal Dusapin presents one of the greatest operas of our time. Exploring human desire, the score is a masterpiece of exceptional musical and dramatic strength. Recorded under the concentrated conducting of Franck Ollu at the Royal Theatre of La Monnaie in Brussels, a world-class place for contemporary opera, it is musically impeccable, with a wonderfully clear and spacious sound."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY SOLO INSTRUMENT
Beethoven/Liszt – Schubert – Haydn – Say – Bartok – Sasaki
Can Çakmur, piano

ICMA: "This very first recording by the young Turkish pianist Can Çakmur is a distinctive achievement. Comprising a wide range of works from Haydn to modern Turkish and Japanese composers, it is a wonderful tribute to the vision and depth of this already mature artist. Based on an analytical approach that doesn’t affect the spontaneity of his interpretations, Can Cakmur’s soundscapes and his ability to share energies with the listener makes this a superb release."

Lili Boulanger: Nocturne – César Franck: Violin Sonata – Louis Vierne: Violin Sonata Op. 23 Eugène Ysaÿe: Poème élégiaque Op. 12
Alina Ibragimova, Cédric Tiberghien

ICMA: "The violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cédric Tiberghien are a consistently impressive musical duo. In this recording devoted to French and Belgian composers, they revisit the famous Sonata of César Franck and also let us discover rarer scores by Louis Vierne and Eugène Ysaÿe. The entire programme shows the deep musicality of Ibragimova and Tiberghien. Their lovely performances are tasteful and stylish."

Ferruccio Busoni: Piano Concerto
Kirill Gerstein
Men of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus
Boston Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo

ICMA: "Ferruccio Busoni’s monumental Piano Concerto is a very challenging work. Kirill Gerstein upholds the highest standards in its rarefied performance history. Neither the barnstorming power nor the Mediterranean playfulness that are equally important components of Busoni’s music are missing in this incredibly attractive interpretation. With perfect harmony between pianist Kirill Gerstein and conductor Sakari Oramo, this recording of Busoni’s Piano Concerto is a precious addition to the catalogue."

Antonio Vivaldi: Arias & instrumental works
Léa Desandre, Bruno Philippe, Peter Whelan
Jean Rondeau, Cecilia Bernardini, Louis Creac’h
Jérôme Van Waerbeke, Douglas Balliett
Jupiter, Thomas Dunford

ICMA: "The debut recording of Jupiter (a group formed in 2018 by the young lute player Thomas Dunford) is destined to become an inevitable reference point for lovers of Antonio Vivaldi’s music, not only in the vocal pieces (with a fine selection of arias superbly performed by the mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre), but also in the orchestral works. This is the very latest generation of Baroque musicians, ready to break down any kind of barriers."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY BEST COLLECTION
Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Chamber Music
Alexei Mikhlin, Evgeniya Seydel, Alexander Brusilovsky, Fyodor Druzhinin, Alla Vasilieva, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Timofei Dokschitzer
Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra
Borodin Quartet, Algis Zhuraitis, Rudolf Barshai

ICMA: "The collection of works by Mieczyslaw Weinberg published by Melodiya stands out even against the backdrop of many brilliant releases with which the music world recently celebrated the centenary of birth of this genius composer. This collection of rare recordings captures not only the unique voice of Weinberg’s music, but also his own art of performing together with outstanding Russian musicians who were his contemporaries."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY VIDEO PERFORMANCE
Richard Strauss: Salome
Asmik Grigorian, John Daszak, Anna Maria Chiuri, Gábor Bretz, Julian Prégardien
Wiener Philharmoniker, Franz Welser-Möst
Romeo Castellucci, stage director

ICMA: "This 2018 Salzburg Festival production of Richard Strauss’s provocative opera Salome has many high qualities. Romeo Castellucci’s incredibly imaginative staging is characterized by its intense symbolism. With her strong and agile voice, Asmik Grigorian is a triumphantly successful interpreter of the title role, musically and dramatically. John Daszak is an excellent Herod, and the rest of the cast is of the finest Salzburg standard. Under the commanding and sympathetic baton of Franz Welser-Möst the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra provides a rapturously successful musical support."

Kremerata Baltica, Giedre Dirvanauskaite, Tatjana Grindenko, Olesya Petrova, Evgeny Svetlanov Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski,
Yomiuri Nippon Symphony, Jacek Kaspszyk
Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Preludes to a Lost Time

ICMA: "Paul Smaczny’s film about the Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, certainly one of the most unconventional and exciting musicians of our time, accompanies the violinist on tour and looks back on important moments of his life. Smaczny explores the musician’s many artistic, intellectual and emotional facets with great empathy and deep understanding for an artist with an exceptional sense of mission and moral responsibility. In addition to the incredibly enriching documentary film, the DVD also includes a recording of a concert at Moscow’s Gogol Centre, with Gidon Kremer playing Weinberg’s 24 Preludes, originally for cello, arranged by Kremer for violin."

Elisabeth Leonskaja, piano

ICMA: "Elisabeth Leonskaja is one of those rare musicians who seem to transcend their time: she is a performer for the ages, and one of the last of the great Russian school, an immense artist whose intellectually superior humility in the face of music has made her universal reputation. Her recent recordings of the Schubert Sonatas – so vivid and so crisp – show that she is not repeating earlier interpretations but continuously refreshes her approach to the great repertoire."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Marina Rebeka, soprano

ICMA: "The Latvian singer Marina Rebeka embodies, perhaps more than any other, the idea of the ‘absolute soprano’: her repertoire spanning from Baroque to Verismo, from Belcanto to Russian music. She always stands out for the astounding perfection of her singing, her immaculate diction in many languages and a moving commitment to the theatrical demands of the different characters."

Image WINNER: CATEGORY ORCHESTRA AWARD
Pepe Romero

ICMA: "Who is Pepe Romero? I can say he is my dear friend and colleague with whom we recently made a successful tour in Germany. But perhaps it must be asked: Who is not Pepe Romero?
Pepe is not an ordinary musician. He is extraordinary, with aristocratic musical genes that would make even a monarch jealous and an artistic sensibility and curiosity that inspires everyone with whom he performs.
Pepe is not an egomaniac. He is an almanac of musical knowledge and an authentic person who generously shares his soul on stage for all to enjoy.
Pepe is not a trend. He is a legend in his time and for all time, championing Spanish music and bringing the full repertoire for the guitar to the world for over a half century.
Without Pepe, our musical literacy would be incomplete. Without Pepe, our lives would be emptier. So it is for these reasons and so many more that the Real Orquesta Sinfonica and I present this special ICMA 2020 Orchestra Award to Pepe Romero, who is not just any soloist of great fame, but a true member of our musical family forever." (Statement by John Axelrod)

John Axelrod

ICMA: "John Axelrod is a highly imaginative and dynamic musician, whose rich musicological background and historical insights combine with intellectual drive and charismatic enthusiasm for people and for life, to get probing, rigorous and richly characterised interpretations. One of John Axelrod’s strengths is the energy he brings to live performances, based on his conviction that each opportunity to make music is a chance to bring about a better world."
