The production „Mahler: Song of the Earth“ from our series „Legendary Recordings“ won the Cannes Classical Award 2004 in the category „Archival/Historical Recording“!
The impressive live-recording was produced in February 1970 with the soloists Janet Baker (Alto) and Waldemar Kmentt (Tenor) and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Rafael Kubelik. Many other music prizes were already awarded to it but the Cannes Classical Award is very special since it is one of the most sought-after prizes of the international music-scene. The CCA-ceremony took place at the MIDEM on the 26th January 2004.
This Cannes Classical Award is already the second one for Audite after the live recording of Mahler's Third Symphony with Rafael Kubelik and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra received this price in the same category („Archival/Historical Recording“) in 2003 already.
