They celebrate the outstanding brilliance of distinguished musicians, composers and young artists and reward imaginative ways of broadening our understanding and enjoyment of music.

The evening was hosted by BBC Radio 3's Andrew McGregor and Sarah Walker, with the silver lyre trophies presented to the winners across thirteen categories by distinguished pianist, composer and writer, Stephen Hough CBE.

Honorary Membership of the RPS was awarded to Barrie Gavin, acclaimed film-maker who has 'single-mindedly documenting the arts through film: above all classical music, with the composers of today as an overriding priority.'
