Bookmark and Share

Once again in 2016, Gramophone is inviting its readers and visitors to its website to vote for its new 'Artist of the Year.' From a shortlist of 10, drawn up by the magazine's editors, readers are invited to vote and this year's list now contains two conductors, a couple of singers, three pianists and three violinists. The list also includes - pianist Daniil Trifonov.

Writing about Trifonov's nomination, Gramophone wrote: "A true star in the making, Trifonov gave us a disc of Rachmaninov variations, combining solo and concertante pieces, including a piece by himself, demonstrating yet another facet in this superb musician's art." Highlights in the UK for Trifonov last year included performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, at the Edinburgh International Festival, and the complete Rachmaninov Piano Concerti with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall in April, May and October 2015. This year, he undertook a residency at the Wigmore Hall in February and June, and in August he returns to the Edinburgh International Festival for a residency of three concerts: a concerto, solo recital and chamber concert.

Gramophone Artist of the Year 2016 voting is open to the public and runs until 31 July and the winner will be revealed at the Gramophone Classical Music Awards on 15 September, 2016. Click here to cast your vote.
