May 15, 2019 | Wencke Wallbaum | News International Classical Music Award for audite

​On May 10th, this year's International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) were awarded in Lucerne. The audite production Sergei Prokofiev: Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution won in the category Choral. The winners were introduced and honoured with a festive award ceremony and a top-class galaconcert with the Lucerne Symphony under Lawrence Foster.

The jury consists exclusively of professional critics for classical music from international media. This guarantees the high level and the independency of the ICMA. Both makes the ICMA the most important international music award, a similar concept on international level cannot be found elsewhere. Thus we feel particularly honoured to receive an ICMA!
