Radulović won the honour with his Paganini Fantasy, the Editor writing: "You need to know from the off that you're in entirely sure hands with works of such fiery virtuosity; and you are. From the opening Caprice onwards, it's a thrilling ride of great self-confidence and expression." The Gramophone review concludes: "This is an exceptional disc by any standards and hard to better as an introduction to Paganini's genius."

Born in Serbia in 1985, Radulović represents a boldly innovative young generation of classical artists. He signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon in December 2013.

Also named a Gramophone "Editor's Choice" is Yannick Nézet-Séguin's account of the Schumann symphonies with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. "Smaller forces than usual," writes the Editor, "but the outcome is brilliant detail: Nézet-Séguin proves why he is one of the most exciting of a remarkably rich generation of young conductors." The review concludes: "Schumann-lite this may be; but it now becomes a heavyweight contender in a far from uncrowded corner of the market."

The Schumann set was also chosen as "Recording of the Month" by BBC Music Magazine, which wrote of Nézet-Séguin's "enormously invigorating and brilliantly executed performances".

Nézet-Séguin told the story of his journey through the Schumann symphonies with a blog, offering exclusive behind-the-scenes insights.

In June he will be touring the Third Symphony in Dortmund, Bad Kissingen and Munich.
