Presto Recordings of the Year

Each year, we choose our 100 favourite recordings released across the previous 12 months. From this shortlist, we carefully select our Top 10 Recordings of the Year - the recordings which really made us listen with fresh ears to works we thought we already knew, or provided compelling advocacy for new discoveries!

With selections made annually in December, you can view details of the most recent winners below, as well as browse through all the winners going back to our first awards in 2014.
