The Jury of the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) announced the Awards for 2021: the Sinfonieorchester Liechtenstein is honouring violinist Marc Bouchkov and cellist Kian Soltani with the Orchestra Award.
ICMA President Remy Franck and Secretary General Nicola Cattò say: «The pandemic might only come into effect for recording companies during the next years. In 2020 the ICMA jury – 20 media from 16 countries – was able to choose nominations among a huge number of releases. As a result, ICMA is again able to present an outstanding international list of winners, with productions from 17 labels and 8 different countries. This proves again that the ICMA Jury has a global overview of the market and grants its annual awards to labels and musicians around the world who have proven outstanding performances in their specific field.»
The concerts performed on November 25 and 26, 2020 in FRANKFURT with the hr-Sinfonieorchester under Stanislav Kochanovsky are now available on YouTube's official channel of the orchestra. You can watch them here and here
