Musical America announces 2010 awards

"Musical America, the country’s leading source of information on all things related to classical music, whether in its printed directory or online at, has announced its awards for 2010.

They’re a distinguished group. Conductor Riccardo Muti, who has led most of the world’s great orchestras at one time or another and been music director for a few of the most distinguished, is 2010’s Musician of the Year.” His fellows are composer Louis Andriessen, violinist Joshua Bell, mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca, and “collaborative pianist” Warren Jones; it’s hard to argue with any of the choices."

For the full story, please see the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
