Gramophone Recording of the Year 2018

The Recording of the Year prize has been awarded to John Nelson's blistering account of Berlioz's Virgilian epic on Erato, recorded in concert last spring: 'Nelson is in no great rush, allowing Berlioz’s music time to breathe where necessary…[His] cast is simply to die for...Énée is thrillingly sung by Michael Spyres…DiDonato’s vehement response to Énée’s desertion reveals her as a great tragedienne…In short this is a peach of recording.'
