Alba Records once again clears away national awards for classical music!

 

   


On 7.2.2018 Finland’s national public-broadcasting company Yleisradio bestowed their Award for Record of the Year on the album Northlands (ABCD 416) which features Matthew Whittall’s music. Last weekend the album Homunculus (ABCD 409) by the Kamus Quartet received the Emma Award for Classical Record of the Year at the Emma-gala.

In Finland two prizes for classical music are awarded every year: Yleisradio’s Award for Record of the Year and the Emma Award for Classical Record of the Year. Since the Yleisradio Award was first given in 1971, Alba has won the prize eight times. The Emma Award for classical music has so far been given twelve times, and this year Alba won it for the eight time. 

Last year the album Side by Side – Bach partitas and folk music from Kaustinen (ABCD 388) by violinist Kreeta Maria Kentala won both of the awards.
