Sensational Kick-Off for GENUIN this Year
The MIDEM Classical Award in Cannes and the Grammy Award in Los Angeles - both of these prizes are doubtless among the most prestigious international awards for classical recordings. A nomination for these prizes alone (there only 3 to 5 nominations for each category) is already a very special honour for artists, label and recording team.
This year GENUIN has indeed succeeded in being represented at both nominations: first of all, with the issue of the Five Piano Concertos of Beethoven with Paul Badura-Skoda, Hermann Scherchen and the Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera (MIDEM Classical Award) and, secondly, with the CD "Gomidas Songs" with Isabel Bayrakdarian and the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded by GENUIN in Erevan, Armenia and released by the American label "Nonesuch Records" (Grammy Award).
The official Grammy Awards Ceremony will take place in Los Angeles at the beginning of February - and, with a little bit of luck, then there will be the first Grammy for a GENUIN production!
