Jenkins triumphs

img  Tobias

Probably in a move to keep results hidden from the public until the day of its TV-broadcast, the organisors of the Classical Brit Awards have withheld almost every single bit of information from interested fans. So, if you should still want to keep the tension, don't read on and wait until May 29th. Everyone else: Katherine Jenkins has added yet another prize to her already impressive collection (that should make for a fine bath room). She managed to win the "Best Album Award", which is in fact the public's choice and had been voted on by listeners of Classic FM. As if that wasn't enough glory for her country, her Welsh compatriote Bryn Terfel managed to go home with the title of Best male artist. Marin Alsop, meanwhile, secured that title in the Female department. Further winners include:

Best Soundtrack Composer (awarded for the first time): John Williams, for "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and "Terminal"
Contemporary Music Award: John Adams for the album "On the transmigration of souls"
Young British Classical Composer Award: Natalie Clein
Ensemble/Orchestral Album of the Year: The Sixteen

The Critics Award, finally, was handed to Steven Hough (Piano), the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Andrew Litton (conductor) for their Rachmaninov Piano Concertos.

More news on this event might follow, once we've had a chance to witness the show on TV.
