This year marked the first time that one title has won the Council’s overarching Book of the Year prize as well as two additional prizes in specific categories.

From the award announcement:

With ​the ears of a crit­ic and the tools of a his­to­ri­an,” Eich­ler intro­duces a new way of under­stand­ing his­to­ry – ​lis­ten­ing with an under­stand­ing of music as time’s echo.” It is a ​ground­break­ing achieve­ment in memo­r­i­al his­to­ry,” as not­ed by our judges.

Congratulations to all the finalists and winners.
