2009 Fryderyk Award nominations

You may have noticed, if you ever take notice of such things, that at the bottom of every post on this blog there is a set of links, and one of those links is labeled “Fryderyks”. That link leads to the official web page of the Fryderyk Awards – awards given by what the site claims is the Polish “Phonographic Academy”. Actually, the whole thing is organized by the Polish “Audio Video Producers’ Union” – which might be more or less the same thing, I wouldn’t know and don’t really care.

Wait a minute, what was I going to say…? Ah, yes! A week ago, on the 12th of February, this year’s nominations were revealed. You can find an online list here (on the official site of the award) or you can download the list of classical nominees in pdf format here (from the Polish Music Information Centre’s site). The only problem: both lists are in Polish and neither gives the disc catalog numbers. Isn’t that type of information sort of… basic? And no cover pics either.

After compiling all those discographies recently I feel a slight (ever so slight) urge to put together an English version of the list. But would anyone need it/have a use for it? I seriously doubt it so, at least for the time being, I leave you with what the monolingual people from the “Phonographic Academy” have prepared.

    An English translation isn’t necessary. Composers’ names are enough. Funny how the word ‘skrzypce’ conjures up scratching a violin (to me)…

    That’s actually the correct etymology, it’s an onomatopoeia (‘creaking instrument’?). Also compare the Latin scribere (‘to write’ but probably with elements of onomatopoeia?) – it’s the same PIE root. I think. 🙂
