‘Orchestra of the Year’ nomination
We are truly delighted, moved and honoured to have been nominated with seven other terrific ensembles for the 2018 “Orchestra of the Year” Award by Gramophone. As the only chamber orchestra amongst the seven other terrific ensembles, the COE has been selected by Gramophone’s editors in recognition of excellence and for its outstanding works on record over the past year.
COE’s nomination is based in particular on our recordings of the Mendelssohn Symphonies with Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Deutsche Grammophon), the album Visions of Prokofiev with Lisa Batiashvili (Deutsche Grammophon) and the Mozart Piano Concertos No 25 & 27 with Piotr Anderszewski (Warners). All three recordings were shortlisted in different categories for this year’s Gramophone Awards as well.
