Roger’s got the Schützmain
The 2019 International Heinrich-Schütz-Preis (mind how you pronounce it) has gone to Sir Roger Norrington, 85.
The prize is worth 30,000 Euros and the citation says he has been, for half a century, one of the most important pioneers in historically informed period practice, ‘after Nicolaus Harnoncourt and Sir John Eliot Gardiner’.
Roger won’t like that.
