WINNER - German Record Critics' Award

Orchestral Concert 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:

Quote, "Wanda 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."
