David Fray has won the 2021 Opus Klassik Award for Innovative Concert of the Year. He is honoured for his Schubert interpretation in the brilliant ballet production Ghost Light by fellow award winner, the choreographer John Neumeier, with the Hamburg Ballet. Seeing Dance writes, “The depth and variety of emotions in Franz Schubert’s piano music, performed here with intense sensitivity by David Fray, finds expression in the finely crafted choreographic episodes.”

Germany’s most prestigious classical music recording honour, the Opus Klassik awards are presented by the Der Verein zur Förderung der Klassischen Musik e.V (The Association for the Promotion of Classical Music). The winners will receive their prizes at the awards gala held on 10 October at Konzerthaus Berlin.
