BBC Music Magazine has announced the nominees for their 2016 Classical Music Awards, and 2010 Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein’s recent disc of Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev is up for the Concerto Award. Decisions are made by a voting process, and you can vote now in eight different categories.
Gerstein, who appears at the 2016 Festival with Ingrid Fliter at Dalton Center Recital Hall and with the Grand Rapids Symphony at DeVos Hall, is the first to record Tchaikovsky’s First Concerto using the composer’s preferred version of the piece. You can read more about Gerstein’s Tchaikovsky recording on our blog.
Gerstein’s recording was selected from a longlist of over 200 releases. The public is welcome to vote until February 19.
