Nora & Marnix win an Edison

Last week it was announced that Splendor musicians Nora Fischer and Marnix Dorrestein have won an Edison Classical in the category 'The Discovery', for their debut album 'Hush' released in April.

With her debut album 'Hush', singer Nora Fischer updates 17th century songs with a modern sound. From melancholy sing-alongs to funky grooves: along with electric guitar player Marnix Dorrestein she translates Monteverdi and Purcell for contemporary ears.
Notes from the jury

The Edison is the longest running Dutch music prize and is awarded in three musical genres: Edison Pop, Edison Classical and Edison Jazz/World. 'The Discovery' is a category within Edison Classical, awarded to an album that, according the jury, absolutely must be heard. On Sunday 11 November at 6pm the prize will be awarded live on television, during the broadcast of Podium Witteman on NPO2.

Unique to this year's award ceremony is that there will be two winners; the Russian-Ukranian pianist Emil Gilels will receive a posthumous award for his 'The Unreleased Recitals at the Concertgebouw'.
