By category

The winner of the award is chosen from the winners in various categories. These are not always the same, so the following listing is not entirely consistent.

  • Opera(tic): 1977, 1978, 1980, 1981, 1986, 1990, 1997, 1999, 2004, 2018
  • Concerto: 1982/3, 1985, 1995, 1996, 2002, 2007, 2013, 2017, 2019
  • Orchestral: 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000, 2001, 2006, 2014, 2015

  • Orchestral music (10 or more instrument; any vocal parts are regarded as subsidiary): 1982/3, 1984, 1985, 1992, 1995, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2019
  • Opera: 1977, 1978, 1980, 1981, 1986, 1990, 1997, 1999, 2004, 2018
  • Vocal music (other than opera): 1987, 1991, 1993, 1998, 2005, 2010, 2012
  • Chamber music (2-9 instruments): 1979, 1989, 2003, 2009, 2011
  • Solo instrumental music: 1994, 2008, 2016

The last edition of The Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2012, in its introductory sections, gives the winners up to 2010. This annual volume has now been discontinued.
