2013: Creative Communication

Announced 13 May 2014

Touch Press: classical music iPad apps

This year's shortlist was exceptional, and notably diverse, but a clear winner emerged nonetheless. Touch Press's three iPad apps - The Orchestra, Beethoven's 9th Symphony and The Liszt Sonata - represent a new pinnacle in the marriage of performance, interpretation and new technology. In shedding light on aspects of our art which so often remain obscure, they possess a rare power to take every listener - regardless of age and expertise - straight to the music's beating heart.
