BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Year
Thursday 12 April 2012

Piotr Anderszewski has received not one but two BBC Music Magazine awards. His CD of works by Robert Schumann was voted best instrumental disc by the public and also awarded the overall jury prize for 2012.

Anderszewski was in London to receive his awards - a rare public outing during his sabbatical. Asked for his reaction he responded: 'I am very honoured to win this award - it has arrived at a special time for me, as I'm currently taking some time off, and it's wonderful to be reconnected with my profession in this way. I feel passionate about Schumann's music, am happy that I have been able to communicate my passion with this CD and grateful that it has been so wonderfully received.'

Anderszewski would not be drawn on what next season holds, though it's safe to say that Schumann remains a source of fascination. A list of his performances in 2012-13 will be posted here later in the summer.
