Italian pianist Beatrice Rana was crowned Young Artist of the Year at the Gramophone Classical Music Awards 2017. A BBC New Generation Artist and an exclusive Warner Classics recording artist at the age of 24, she has already produced two critically-acclaimed albums praised for ‘calm stillness that betokens perfectly relaxed technique and allows her to bring out the innate intelligence of her musical personality’.
Beatrice was present at the award ceremony, which took place in London, to receive the award in person and treat the audience to a live performance of Schumann/Liszt’s “Widmung”.
The 2017 Award ceremony was streamed live on the Gramophone website, medici.tv and via Classic FM’s Facebook page. Watch the full replay on Medici.tv
