News | Posted on Friday 2 September 2022

Professor Martin Suckling's highly acclaimed disc, 'The Tuning', has been shortlisted for a prestigious Gramophone Classical Music Award.

Released on the Delphian label in January this year, Professor Martin Suckling's disc of chamber music has been nominated in the Contemporary category at this year's awards.

Described by Gramophone Magazine as 'among the most distinctive British composers of his generation',  Suckling made this recording in the enviable acoustics of the School's Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall, supported by a York Impact Accelerator Fund grant as well as grants from the Leverhulme Trust and the RVW Trust.

Alongside Suckling's music the disc also features poetry from Frances Leviston, with whom Suckling is currently developing 'Black Fell', an online interactive digital opera, supported by DC Labs.

The Gramophone Classical Music Awards 2022 will be held on October 4 and an online stream will be available from October 7.
