Ensemble amarcord's "Restless Love" recording wins Germany's prestigious ECHO-Klassik Award

Ensemble amarcord has won the 2010 ECHO-Klassik Award for its CD “Restless Love - A Stroll through Romantic Leipzig” (“Rastlose Liebe - Ein Spaziergang durch das romantische Leipzig”). The recording was named Choral Recording of the Year for the category “18th - 19th Century Choral/Ensemble Music.” The CD was recorded by GENUIN recording group sound engineer Michael Silberhorn last year. The gala awards ceremony held on October 17 at the Essen Philharmonie was broadcast on German national television.

The award-winning recording pays homage to the five singers’ home city and is the Leipzig-based ensemble's tenth CD release. In addition to music by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Robert Schumanns, the disc also features vocal settings by lesser-known composers such as Adolf Eduard Marschner, Heinrich Marschner, Carl Steinacker, August Mühling and Carl Friedrich Zöllner.
