Also in 2019 audite is honoured with an International Classical Music Award (ICMA). The winner in the category choral is Prokofiev's Revolution Cantata with Kirill Karabits, the Staatskapelle Weimar and the Ernst Senff Chor (rehearsal: Steffen Schubert).
Statement of the jury: "Kirill Karabits frees Prokofiev's October Revolution Cantata from any possible revolutionary pathos, enhancing the satirical and destructive character of the music, which Prokofiev didn't dare to publish. The large ensemble united for this performance delivers a taut and focused sound, superbly caught by the microphones."
After numerous enthusiastic reviews and awards from the international press, the production receives with the ICMA now one of the most important awards of the international music scene. We are very happy about this recognition!
The Award Ceremony and Gala Concert will take place at the KKL in Lucerne, Switzerland, on 10 May 2019, with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lawrence Foster.
