WINNER - German Record
CDs was awarded the prestigious German Record Critics' Award (Quarterly
Critics' Choice for Q4 2012 Historical Recordings category) with CD12/2011.
Herewith a quote from the jury spokesman, Wolfgang Wendel:
Wilkomirska presents herself here as one of the great storytellers on
the violin. She plays one of the most important concertos of the 20th
Century, and the recording technique is sensational. An unrepeatable constellation."

not only the sublime musical performance but also the exceptional quality
of the sound recording.
