Aris Quartett and Schaghajegh Nosrati: Two GENUIN CDs nominated for the German Record Critics' Award
10.1.2018: For GENUIN, the new year begins with two nominations for a distinguished award for musicians: the German Record Critics' Prize is awarded annually to the best new releases by an independent jury of journalists. The jury nominated the new CD by Schaghajegh Nosrati, on which she recorded Johann Sebastian Bach's piano concertos BWV 1052-1054 with the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin. The jury also nominated the Aris Quartet's debut CD with Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartets 9 and 14 for the prize.
The jury is thereby joining the excellent press response that both CDs have received. For example, Pizzicato writes about the new recording of Schaghajegh Nosrati: "In all respects recommendable! More reviews about the CD "Johann Sebastian Bach" can be found here.
With its new recording "the Aris-Quartett demonstrates itself as world-class, especially in sensitivity," writes the Literaturspiegel about the debut CD of the young quartet. Further reviews about the CD "Ludwig van Beethoven" can be found here.
