The »Ausgezeichnet! 2021« is here!

Our new PdSK brochure reports on good music from all genres on roughly eighty pages: Presented are all the critics’ choices of the »German Record Critics’ Award« from the last nine months and all current annual and honorary award winners 2020/21. For every music track, we also publish the judges’ reasoning.

22.07.2021 – The focus is once again on our 2020 Nachtigall Award winner, Brigitte Fassbaender. The award party had to be postponed multiple times due to the coronavirus, and now in July, it finally took place – at the Tirol Festival, in Erl. We also celebrate our annual award winners, including Carla Bley, Olivia Vermeulen, Jan Philip Schulze, Markus Poschner, The Düsseldorf Düsterboys as well as our honorary award winners Ute Kleeberg, Nils Wogram and Max Emanuel Cencic.

At the end of the booklet, the jury introduces itself, in pictures and text: 156 Music critics and specialist journalists who work in 32 jury categories, from Opera to Piano Music to Ethno and Jazz, from Choral Music to Pop, Rock, Electronic and Experimental.

»Ausgezeichnet! 2021« is published free of charge. The booklet is available in German from public events of the PdSK, award ceremonies, and Quartets of Critics as soon as they can occur again.

A PDF version is now available for download.

Individual paper copies can be obtained from our office free of charge.
