Apr 25, 2022 | Wencke Wallbaum | News ICMA Award Ceremony & Gala Concert: Boreas Quartett Bremen

On 21 April, this year's ICMAs were awarded in Luxembourg and numerous prize winners were presented in a top-class and the most extensive gala concert ever with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg (OPL) under the predominant direction of Adam Fischer.

audite was again honoured with an International Classical Music Award (ICMA): The jury's choice in the "Early Music" category fell on the production Basevi Codex - Music at the Court of Margaret of Austria with Dorothee Mields (soprano) and the Boreas Quartett Bremen (recorder consort). The Boreas Quartet, which travelled to the festival without Dorothee Mields, performed alone both at the preceding award ceremony and at the evening gala concert, shining with Thomas Tallis' "In Nomine" and the highly virtuosic "Flashing Flutes" from Piet Swerts' "Three Gadgets".
In addition to the almost 1000 spectators in the Philharmonie's Grand Auditorium, the gala concert could also be followed live by countless people via live stream and on Luxembourg and Romanian radio as well as Deutsche Welle.
