Presto Recordings of the Year

Each year, we choose our 100 favourite recordings released across the previous 12 months. From this shortlist, we carefully select our Top 10 Recordings of the Year - the recordings which really made us listen with fresh ears to works we thought we already knew, or provided compelling advocacy for new discoveries!

With selections made annually in December, you can view details of the most recent winners below, as well as browse through all the winners going back to our first awards in 2014.

Presto Recordings of the Year 2018 - Our Top 10

After some spirited debate and many hours of listening, the Presto editorial team have finally decided on our Top 10 Recordings of 2018 - the albums which really made us listen afresh to core repertoire, or made compelling cases for music which was new to us. You can browse the winners below, or in our article. Plus, until 28th January 2019 we're offering very special prices on all 100 finalists; the perfect chance to explore these outstanding recordings.
