BBC Music Magazine announces the awards for 2008.

Disc of the Year & Instrumental Award

Mitsuko Uchida
Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos 28 & 29

I heard of her performance in some works from Mozart, Chopin and Schubert, but I never have owned her CDs. Maybe I’d check this out.

And the rest of the winners are

Orchestral Winner

I have two Argerich’s recordings of Shostakovich’s piano concerto No. 1, but not this recording, which is the most recent one recorded in 2006 Lugano Festival. On my to-buy list.
