Bo Holten’s modern Baroque opera Gesualdo – Shadows, performed by Musica Ficta and Concerto Copenhagen, was released on DVD last year and has now been short-listed in two categories: Category 16 (Opera Recording of the Year – Opera from the 20th/21st century) and Category 19 (Audiovisual Musical Production of the Year).

The recording by the Vienna Philharmonic of Rued Langgaard’s Symphonies 2 & 6, conducted by Sakari Oramo, has been short-listed in Category 14 (Symphonic Recording of the Year – Music from the 20th/21st century).

And the violist Rafaell Altino’s album Works for Solo Viola, with six newly written works for solo viola, has been short-listed in Category 3 (Instrumentalist of the Year: Viola) and Category 10 (Soloist Recording of the Year – Instrument).
