New Peters Edition of Faure Songs Wins Prize

Singers at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland will be aware that the Whittaker Library recently acquired several copies of Roy Howat's splendid new Faure song edition.  He won a prestigious prize for it!  We thought we'd share the glad tidings with our readers.  Roy comments,

"We’re delighted to learn that the new Peters edition of Fauré songs vol. 1 has received a “Best Edition” award at the Frankfurt Musikmesse this week:

"We’re specially happy to see the jury blurb end by saying the new edition should see this repertoire better established in German concert repertoire.  And elsewhere, of course.

"Our collaborations with enthusiastic and skilled colleagues have made it possible, and if we’re feeling proud of this, it’s not just for us but also for Peters Edition, the RAM and the RCS."
