Congratulations to two of Albion Media’s clients, Joyce DiDonato and Sir John Eliot Gardiner, selected to be among the inaugural 50 members of the Gramophone Hall of Fame.
Launched as part of Gramophone’s 90th birthday celebrations, the magazine asked readers and visitors to its website to vote for artists they believed have most influenced the classical record industry with Joyce DiDonato and Sir John Eliot Gardiner, championed by composer and pianist Jake Heggie and pianist Robert Levin respectively, listed among an elite list of the 20th and 21st century classical music icons.
Joyce DiDonato is one of the most famous and well-respected mezzo of her generation, having graced the stages of all of the world grand opera houses and won a Grammy Award for best classical vocal solo in 2012 for her album DIva DIvo. Joyce DiDonato will make her role debut as the title character in Maria Stuarda at Houston Grand Opera House at the end of this month.
Sir John Eliot Gardiner is one of the most respected and versatile conductors of our time. Acknowledged as a key figure in the early music revival, in 2006 Gardiner became the first international performer to launch their own record label, Soli Deo Gloria (SDG), which has become arguably the most prestigious and successful of its kind in the world. Sir John Eliot Gardiner is currently conducting Royal Opera House’s Rigoletto.
