This time, we won the "12th CD Shop Awards 2020" in the category "Classical" !
The CD Shop Award is an annual award selected only by the votes of CD shop clerks nationwide.
I am honored to receive such a prestigious award. A CD is something that can never be created alone, even if there is only one performer. Congratulations to the members of the recording team who worked behind the scenes and skillfully accomplished the process of producing this CD (b-sharp Philipp Nedel, Michael Bramann, piano engineer Gerd Finkenstein, Ryusuke Kozawa of Sony Music).
And I would like to express my gratitude to the CD shops who always sell CDs in the stores and at the performance venues, and to my family who always provide accurate and warm support.
