The news that Emma Dunch is the new CEO for Sydney Symphony Orchestra is so refreshing. If it can happen there, then maybe it can happen more here.
Pleased to see Thomas Adès LSO recording on the list. So too, Daniil Trifonov playing Lizst’s terrifying Trascendental Etudes I first heard in Verbier 2015.
It seems incredible to me that someone I used to book to play rank and file in the cellos 20 years ago, is now featuring in a Gramophone award – Jonathan Cohen’s well-deserved rise to prominence continues.
Good as well to see that Glyndebourne’s Lucretia from 2015, available on DVD, is on the list too.
