Gramophone Recording of the Year 2020

The Recording of the Year prize has been awarded to Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica for their accounts of two symphonies by the Polish-born Soviet composer Mieczysław Weinberg - music which the Lithuanian conductor described as ‘a huge inspiration in these days of loss which we are living through right now’ in her acceptance-speech. Reviewing the recording in June 2019, Gramophone’s David Fanning praised the ‘extraordinary depth and power of the string sound’ and Gražinytė-Tyla’s ‘terrific feel for the long structural-dynamic line’.
