The RPS Music Awards
are the highest recognition for live classical music-making in the United Kingdom and reflect our guiding principles of Excellence, Creativity and Understanding.
These independent awards were set up in 1989 to celebrate the outstanding musical achievements of both young and established, British and International, musicians. Each Award is decided by an eminent jury from the music profession. The list of winners since 1989 reads as a roll call of the finest living musicians.
The awards honour a broad sweep of live music making including categories for performers, composers, inspirational arts organisations learning, participation and engagement. There is no restriction on the nationality of recipients, but the awards are for achievements within the United Kingdom.
