L’APOTHÉOSE WIN THE YORK EARLY MUSIC INTERNATIONAL YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION
L’Aphotéose continues to monopolize awards. The Spanish group, specializing in music of the eighteenth century, has just won the first prize at the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, which convenes the National Center of Early Music (which becomes in England what the Center de musique baroque of Versailles in France).
The contest has been held in the aforementioned city of northern England between July 5 and 13, and has had the participation of ten groups from England, France, Holland, Switzerland, Germany and Canada. The jurors (among whom were Tobias Wolff – director of the Haendel-Festspiele of Göttingen -, the harpsichordist Carole Cerasi, the laudist Elizabeth Kenny and Philip Hobbs – chief producer of the Linn record label) – finally opted for L’Apothéose , which, in addition to receiving a thousand pounds sterling in cash, will have the possibility of recording a disc with the aforementioned Scottish label (one of the most prestigious in the world of those dedicated to classical music), in addition to offering a concert in the next edition of the York Early Music Festival.
The Spanish group won two more awards: the EUBO Development Trust Prize and the Friends of York Early Music Festival.
