Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

The 2013 Gramophone Classical Music Award-winning recordings announced

For the first time in the history of the Gramophone Classical Music Awards the Award-winning recordings in each category are being revealed exclusively here on the Gramophone website. Select a category below to discover which recordings have won Awards. You can also listen to tracks from each recording, enjoy interviews with the artists, and read articles fromGramophone‘s unrivalled digital archive. In the meantime you can listen to tracks and read full reviews of each of the winning recordings in the 11 categories: Baroque Instrumental Baroque Vocal Chamber Choral Concerto Contemporary Early Music Instrumental Opera Orchestral Vocal To mark this year’s Gramophone Classical Music Awards, iTunes has made the winning recordings available as ‘Mastered for iTunes’. Instead of relying on the standard 16-bit 44.1kHz sound quality offered by CD, the ‘Mastered for iTunes’ process starts with a 24-bit up-to-96kHz master file and converts this to iTunes’s standard AAC format, playable like all iTunes downloads on your Mac, PC or mobile device. In addition Apple has made their AAC encoder available to Mastering Engineers so they can preview exactly what will be downloaded. Many feel the results are as good if not better than the quality of a CD, and virtually indistinguishable from a studio master. If you already have an iTunes account, click here; if new to iTunes, visit iTunes and click on the blue ‘Download Now’ button to install. Then click here and iTunes will open

  1. What you wrote made a lot of sense. However, think on this, what if you were to write a awesome title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however what if you added a post title to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean The 2013 Gramophone Classical Music Award-winning recordings announced is
    kinda vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post titles
    to get people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
