In three rounds, the Jury of the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) has chosen the releases competing in the finals for the awards 2020. « Our initial list with a total of 390 nominations comprised many very good as well as outstanding recordings. This long list has been reduced to three releases per category, our finalists for 2020 », Jury President Remy Franck said. « Inevitably, many excellent productions have been eliminated. The jury members tirelessly make it a duty of honor to select the very best among the best recordings. The task is definitely demanding and requires sometimes painful choices. But the eliminated recordings are still nominations and our nominations are undeniably a real recognition. »
The winners will be published on Tuesday 21 January 2020.
