Krystian Zimerman recordings / discography
During his more than 25-year collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon, Mr. Zimerman has made two dozen recordings, for which he has frequently received the most prestigious record awards. In his most recent CD for DG, released internationally in March 2006, he teamed up with Sir Simon Rattle for the recording of Brahms' First Piano Concerto. His critically acclaimed recording of the Rachmaninov Concertos with the Boston Symphony and Seiji Ozawa received the 2004 Record Academy Award in Japan, as well as the 2005 award for Best Orchestral Album at the Midem Classical Awards (listen to excerpts here). In addition to his recording awards, Mr. Zimerman recently received the "Ordre National de la Légion d'honneur," the highest civilian award given by the French government. He has also received an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Katowice Music Academy, which carries special distinction, as it is only the second time in the University's history that an honorary doctorate has been awarded.
