Sep 2, 2019 | Wencke Wallbaum News & Release & Rezension Diapason d'or for Quartetto Italiano

The Diapason d'Or (literally "Golden Tuning Fork" in French) is a recommendation of outstanding (mostly) classical music recordings given by reviewers of Diapason magazine in France, broadly equivalent to "Editor's Choice", "Disc of the Month" in the British Gramophone magazine.

The Diapason d'Or de l'Année (literally "Golden Tuning Fork of the Year") is a more prestigious award, decided by a jury comprising critics from Diapason and broadcasters from France Musique, and is comparable to the United Kingdom's (UK) Gramophone Awards, associated with the Gramophone magazine.

The Diapason d'or is considered one of the most important independent European record awards for classical music.
