Royal victory over spin

Good to see Kate Royal winning the category for Young Artists at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards last night. Kate (above) featured here for her performance in Britten's Turn of the Screw last year when I described her as a 'startling new soprano', and in the chamber version of Mahler's Fourth Symphony back in 2005 when I described her as a 'rising star'. Gustavo Dudamel was runner-up.

Also good to see On An Overgrown Path featured artists and local band the Britten Sinfonia win the Ensemble category. Even better to see the Royal Philharmonic Society getting it right for a change, because usually industry awards are a sore point.
