We are proud to share that the BFO is among the 10 nominated ensembles for the 2022 Orchestra of the Year Award!
For the fifth consecutive year, the Gramophone Classical Music Awards will be naming an Orchestra of the Year in 2022, the only one of its prestigious awards decided by the public. Celebrating collaborative music-making at the highest level and reflecting the very best recording activity, previous winners have included the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Further current nominees include the Bayerisches Staatsorchester, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic. Nomination comes as a result of each ensemble impressing Gramophone’s editors and reviewers through its work on record, and all ten have released magnificent and often thought-provoking new albums over the past 12 months – for the BFO our latest Brahms-record was the reason for selection.
Voting remains live until 8am on Monday, September 7 and the Orchestra of the Year will be revealed on Tuesday, October 4 at the 2022 Gramophone Classical Music Awards, a glittering ceremony that will take place in London.
We would be grateful if you could cast your vote for the BFO on Gramophone’s website!
