Pianist Andrejs Osokins Nominated For The Prestigious German Classical Music Award

On June 4 the nominees for the prestigious German classical music recording award Opus Klassik were announced, among which Latvian pianist Andrejs Osokins had four nominations. Osokins’ album “Two Worlds” created at “Prima Classic” music publishing house has been nominated in the categories “Best Instrumentalist of the Year”, “Classics without Borders”, “Best Instrumental Solo Performance of the Year”, “Young Artist of the Year”.

“I am extremely happy, emotionally fulfilled and grateful to the “Prima Classic” team and especially to Marina Rebeka for the trust in the recording of this album. It was an unforgettably beautiful process, and I am delighted that the album recorded in the Latvian Radio studio received such a high evaluation by an international jury. I am proud of how many wonderful Latvian musicians have been nominated for this award, which once again proves that Latvia is truly a world music superpower!” says Andrejs Osokins.

Traditionally, the Opus Klassik (formerly Echo Klassik) award ceremonies take place in October at the Konzerthaus Berlin. Along with Andrejs Osokins, this year’s nominees include Hans Zimmer, Martha Argerich, Daniel Barenboim, Marina Rebeka, Elīna Garanča, Andris Nelsons, Gidons Krēmers and other outstanding Latvian and foreign musicians in various award categories.

Andrejs Osokins’ album “Two Worlds” was released in March this year by the American music publisher “Prima Classic”. It is dedicated to two outstanding composers – George Gershwin and Claude Debussy – and reveals both composers as creators of a new style of piano music and the beginning of the 20th century as a time of search and experimentation in music. The soundtrack is directed and produced by Edgardo Vertanessian. Even before the release of the album, the recordings of the compositions included in it were noticed and appreciated in the world, receiving the recognition of music experts from the music streaming sites “Spotify”, “Apple Music” and “Amazon Music”.
