Angela Gheorghiu and Kiri Te Kanawa inducted into Gramophone Hall of Fame

Warner Classics and Erato luminaries among '25 people who shaped classical music recording’.

Every year, the leading UK classical magazine Gramophone honours a carefully selected group of artists, producers, engineers and label executives who have shaped the classical recording industry.

In the June issue, out now, the publication has announced the 25 legends in this year’s cream of the crop.

Among them are Warner Classics and Erato president Alain Lanceron (who was also recipient of Gramophone’s Special Achievement Award last year), iconic  singers Angela Gheorghiu, Tito Gobbi and Kiri Te Kanawa – the latter celebrating her 70th birthday this year – conductor Riccardo Muti and pianist Artur Schnabel.

Find out more about these classical music legends in the June issue of Gramophone.
