About the Prelude Classical Music Award
Every year a professional jury of classical music reviewers grants the 'Edison Classical Music Awards' of the Dutch Edison Foundation. The ‘Edison’ is an initiative of the NVPI, an umbrella organization in which producers and distributors of CDs are united. Only a limited number of these members are involved in the production and/or the distribution of classical CDs. The Edison jury makes its selection from the productions the NVPI members came up with themselves. It will be clear that the importance of the affiliated members plays a vital role in the acceptance of the CDs that are due for nomination. It is striking that the crisis that is taking place in the world of the classical CDs is also reflected in the productions that qualify for nomination.
