Classic Arts News   Diana Krall, Tafelmusik Among Winners at Canada's Juno Awards
 
Toronto's venerable early-music group Tafelmusik was a double winner at the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences' annual Juno Awards, presented in Winnipeg over the weekend.

Tafelmusik won Classical Album of the Year in two categories: large ensemble with soloist for an album of music by Jean-Phillippe Rameau with violinist Jeanne Lamon, and vocal performance for Cleopatra, a collection of arias sung by soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian.

Pianist Angela Hewitt won Classical Album of the Year: Solo or Chamber Ensemble for a recording of Bach's English Suites, and Istvan Anhalt won Classical Composition of the Year for The Tents of Abraham.

Pianist and vocalist Diana Krall, who had been nominated for Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, and the Juno Fan Choice, lost out to pop musicians in all three categories, but did win Vocal Jazz Album of the Year for The Girl in the Other Room. The David Braid Sextet took home the award for Traditional Jazz Album of the Year for Vivid: The David Braid Sextet Live; the Hilario Duran Trio won Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for New Danzon.
