2016: Instrumentalist

Annouced 9 May 2017


James Ehnes

"Blessed with a generosity of spirit and an innate musicality, James Ehnes, even by his own standards, had a wonderfully productive 40th birthday year. Whether as Artist in Residence at the Liverpool Philharmonic; acclaimed country-wide concerto, recital and quartet performances or participation in the ‘In Harmony’ programme, he delivered an extraordinary breadth of communication through his eloquent music making."
