Deutsche Grammophon has triumphed at this year’s Gramophone Awards – regarded as the Oscars of classical music – winning the coveted ‘Recording of the Year’ for Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla’s debut album on DG. The top prize and the Orchestral award went to Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica for their recording of Mieczysław Weinberg’s Symphonies Nos 2 & 21. Weinberg (1919-96) is a Polish composer, once reportedly described by Shostakovich as “the best composer you’ve never heard”, whose music is enjoying something of a renaissance, in large part thanks to this recording, released in Weinberg’s centenary year. Unsurprisingly, the depth and realism of DG’s recording are superb, and the all-important spatial distancing of the soloists in the Kaddish Symphony is beautifully captured. All in all, this has to be one of the most important symphonic releases of the year. David Fanning, Gramophone, June 2019
