2010-11 Opus Award
At the 15th annual Opus Awards ceremony held on Sunday January 29, 2012, the recording of works by Quebec composer Serge Arcuri won the 2010-11 Opus Award for best recording of the year in the contemporary and modern music category. The album, titled "Migrations", was recorded by Yegor Dyachkov with distinguished colleagues Louise Bessette (piano), Jonathan Crow and Mark Fewer (violins), Douglas McNabney (viola), Robert Cram (flute) and Simon Aldrich (clarinet). The album has recently received a wonderful review by Christophe Huss of Le Devoir (see this page).
The Opus Awards, organized by the Conseil Québecois de la Musique, offered a richly deserved and touching homage to Yuli Turovsky this year. Yuli was Yegor's teacher in Montreal during some of his most formative years (1988-1993).
