Gramophone Awards 2018

PPL is proud to be supporting the Gramophone Classical Music Awards again in 2018.

The Gramophone Awards were launched in 1977 at the suggestion of the record industry who felt that such an annual event was lacking. As the 41st Awards ceremony approaches, the Gramophone Awards are firmly established as the world’s most respected and influential arbiters in the world of classical music.

As well as honouring recorded music across a number of genres - one of which is named Recording of the Year - the Awards also celebrate an Artist of the Year, Young Artist of the Year and bestows a Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 2018 PPL and PRS for Music are jointly sponsoring the Contemporary category. The shortlist of nominees is:

  • Dean Dramatis personae Francesconi Hard Pace Håkan Hardenberger; Gothenburg SO / John Størgårds (BIS)
  • Dusapin Quatuor VI & VII Arditti Quartet et al (aeon)
  • Pickard Symphony No 5 etc BBC NOW / Martyn Brabbins (BIS)
