Deutsche Grammophon Artists Triumph in Classic FM "Albums of the Year"
Deutsche Grammophon artists have swept the board at the Classic FM “Albums of the Year 2014”, claiming no fewer than four places in the Top Twenty.
In the Top Ten are Daniel Hope’s Escape To Paradise (“Hope is clearly having a ball, but with John Williams’ ‘Schindler’s List’ he does remind us of what a powerfully emotional violinist he can be”) and the Thielemann/Pollini/Batiashvili Brahms set (“Bold design, bold performances, bold everything”).
Also honoured in Classic FM’s list are Lisa Batiashvili’s Bach (“After stunning the UK crowds with her first performance at the Bristol Proms back in July, Lisa Batiashvili has proven that she can take Bach to the masses”) and Daniel Barenboim’s Schubert Piano Sonatas (“The Argentine ... turns his attention to Schubert, and it’s every bit as detailed, nuanced and entertaining as you would imagine from the hands of a modern master”).
The Classic FM “Albums of the Year” are voted for by the station’s presenters and staff, naming their favorite releases.
