2023 ICMA Nominees Announced
Two International Classical Music Award nominations for Linn recordings
Congratulations to Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Sol Gabetta whose latest recording on Alpha Classics has been named Chamber Recording of the Year by Limelight. The awards celebrate outstanding recordings across five categories, making the competition particularly fierce. The award-winning recording, Sol & Pat, is an eclectic recital of violin and cello duets from the always-remarkable duo.
The original review, which was named Recording of the Month in the December 2021 issue, reads:
"Seldom have two idiosyncratic talents combined with such wit and artistry as violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and cellist Sol Gabetta, long-time collaborators on the concert platform and friends off-stage, produce in this effervescent exercise in musical acrobatics." Limelight
This is the second time this year that an Alpha Classics recording featuring Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Sol Gabetta has been named a winner. In April 2022 they won the BBC Music Magazine Concerto Award for Plaisirs illuminés on which they gave the world premiere of Francisco Coll’s double concerto for violin, cello and orchestra.
