ECHO Klassik is one of the best established and most well-known music awards in the world.

Every year the German Phono Akademie - the cultural institute of the German music industry association - honours the outstanding and successful performances of national and international artists with this award. The ECHO Klassik was launched in 1994 as an event of its own to do justice to the cultural importance of classical music and to further its popularity.
