The Recording of the Year prize has been awarded to French pianist Bertrand Chamayou for his accounts of two Saint-Saëns piano concertos (with the Orchestre National de France and Emmanuel Krivine) and an imaginative, exquisitely played selection of the composer's lesser-known short works for solo piano: 'I would go as far as placing Chamayou and Krivine at or near the top of the myriad recordings [of Concerto No. 2] currently available...his pianissimo-leggiero and jeu perlé playing are quite masterly.' (Jeremy Nicholas)
