ICMA 2018 – The finalists

  • 04/12/2017

In several rounds, the Jury of the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) has chosen the releases competing in the finals for the awards 2018. « Our list with a total of 357 nominations comprised many very good as well as outstanding recordings. Yet, the rules are way of cruel, since every member has to eliminate step by step all the releases but one », Jury President Remy Franck said. « Obviously many excellent productions are left behind. That’s why we consider our nominations already as a real recognition. For sure, some of the Jury members regret that a number of their own favorites have not made it into the finals, but choices are inevitable and part of the responsibility that shapes the Jury member’s duties. The goal is to get a winner list corresponding to the highest possible standards and reflecting the choice of our international Jury. » Read More →
