Rafał Blechacz awarded with Grand Prix du Disque Frédéric Chopin


From KlassikAkzente on November 9, 2010,

Every five years, Polish Chopin Society gives the Grand Prix of Disque of Frédéric Chopin.  It is sought-after award in the professional world and finally there is the independent jury composed of artists, journalists and producers who are just as knowledgeable as strictly judgmental.

In this anniversary year, awards were now given again, and Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz was given the top prize in the category; “Contemporary Recording”.  In addition, his “Preludes” was honored with Honorable Mention, so was the recording of Nocturnes by his Brazilian colleague Nelson Freire . In the historic segment of the republication, the early reception “Martha Argerich plays Chopin” got the Chopin Prize.
A respectable record for the artists of Deutsche Grammophon and Decca!
