The stars of the classical music world were out in force tonight, celebrating the greatest music making of the past year. We followed all the action.
Getting ready for classical music's big night
It was a hot day in London and there was a lovely Baroque church to fill with beautiful music. Hello, St John's Smith Square!
We filmed lots of video of today's classical stars
Here's amazing Vilde Frang with some showstopping Tárrega. Recuerdos de la Alhambra - just lovely.
We live streamed the whole ceremony

We're also giving away a signed copy of the Gramophone Recording of the Year, by pianist Igor Levit.
We captured Igor in a relaxed moment, playing a spot of jazz. Here he is with Round Midnight.
