Dr Philip Thomas as a member of Apartment House has won the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Award in the Chamber Music and Song category. Last night’s awards ceremony at The Dorchester in London saw Artistic Director Anton Lukoszevieze receive the award on the ensemble’s behalf.
The Winners Citation read:
“Apartment House’s performances are always revelatory, and the concert of John Cage’s music at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in September 2011 was an epiphany, confirming the status of Apartment House as one of the most innovative and exciting chamber ensembles in Europe.”
