Gramophone Award Winners 2017


Early Music
Dowland: Lachrimae, or Seaven Teares
Elizabeth Kenny (lute), Phantasm (CKD527)
“Phantasm’s performances are totally convincing and absorbing…their acuity to the music’s ever-active emotional flux leaves them unafraid to use forceful gestures of articulation and dynamics to make a point


Haydn 2032 Volume 4 – Il Distratto
Il Giardino Armonico, Giovanni Antonini (ALPHA674)
“As in the previous volumes, the orchestral playing is breathtaking in its accuracy -the sort of Haydn playing you dream of…this may well become the period-instrument Haydn cycle by which all others are measured.”
