James Ehnes Named Gramophone’s Artist of the Year

Heartiest congratulations to an artist I have admired for many years. James Ehnes was named Artist of the Year at Gramophone’s recent annual awards ceremony. Charlotte Gardner writes eloquently of the violinist’s extraordinary recent accomplishments in a complete Beethoven sonata set as well as his pandemic project recording the Bach and Ysaÿe solo violin works: “Ehnes’s warm, golden sound is as much a constantly changing story of articulation and timbre as ever, but sounding even more emotionally up close and personal than ever before…”

It’s deeply gratifying to see such a deserving artist receive this distinction. Here’s the playlist Gramophone has put together in conjunction with this award:
