Burkard Schliessmann

Divine Art artist wins international award

Divine Art Recordings’ artist Burkard Schliessmann has been distinguished with the award of three Silver Medals at the 2017 Global Music Awards.

Known as “music’s golden seal of approval”, the Global Music Awards honored Schliessmann as an instrumentalist and for ‘Outstanding Achievements as a Classical Artist’, as well as for his Divine Art album ‘Chronological Chopin’.

‘Chronological Chopin’ is a triple SACD set with state of the art sound that chronicles works by Chopin in order, showing the composer’s development through a chronological programme including the 24 Preludes, Op. 28, the complete Scherzi and Ballades and other works.

James Harrington of American Record Guide said “I rank this Chopin among the best available” while Music and Vision’s Gerald Fenech called it “an innovative Chopin adventure in luscious sound and presentation which I recommend unreservedly.”
