L'Arpeggiata nominated for the Opera category in BBC Music Magazine Awards

Vote now: among the nominees, the sumptuous Baroque feast of 'l'Amore Innamorato' - arias by Cavalli.

The 2017 BBC Music Magazine Awards nominations have been announced, and you can vote now for your favourite albums of the past year.

Among this year's candidates in the Opera category is Christina Pluhar and l'Arpeggiata's exquisite Cavalli album l'Amore Innamorato (which translates to 'love in love').

“Hana Blažiková's limpid sound contrasts well with Nuria Rial's smokier tones," wrote BBC Music Magazine's critic in the 5-star review, in praise of the two superb sopranos on the album. "After L'Arpeggiata's recent forays into jazz, popular and cross-over repertoires, it is good to hear them return to Baroque music - and on dazzling form.”

The BBC Music Magazine Awards are the only classical music prizes open entirely to the public. Make your voice heard and vote in any of the eight categories. Entries close 24 February, 2017.
