Recording Of The Year
Lise and Leif Ove Andnes’s Grieg album has been chosen as one of Presto Music’s Recordings Of The Year.
The Presto editorial team explained they chose the winners because they were: “The albums which really made us listen afresh to core repertoire, told absorbing stories through their imaginative programming, or made compelling cases for music that was new to us all.”
Katherine Cooper, Head of Editorial (Classical) at Presto, said of Lise’s Grieg recording: “This is one of those albums where the synergy between the two artists and their mutual affinity with the repertoire combine to truly spellbinding effect. Davidsen may be destined for Isolde and Brünnhilde, but she’s also capable of extraordinary delicacy when painting on a smaller canvas – and Andsnes backs her to the hilt throughout.”
