Have you ever watched the Grammy's or checked out the Billboard charts and thought what was the committee thinking when they picked so-and-so? Well now's your chance to BE the committee (and let other people wonder what you were thinking!) Gramophone Magazine has decided to dispense with its normal process of choosing the artist of the year for 2007 and let us, the public, do the choosing.
Some of this year's contenders include Welsh baritone-with-dulcet-tones, Bryn Terfel; conductor/pianist/jet-setter Daniel Barenboim; one of the "Strad Pack" German violinist Julia Fischer; the fearless American mezzo, Joyce DiDonato and the unbelievably-overworked conductor, Valery Gergiev.
