2023 AMIS Award Winners
The Nicholas Bessaraboff Prize
Murray Campbell, Joël Gilbert, and Arnold Myers; Robert Adelson
The Nicholas Bessaraboff Prize is awarded annually for the best book-length publication in English that furthers the goals of the Society. The prize committee has made two awards for 2023, for two equally distinguished, but very different, contributions to organology: Murray Campbell, Joël Gilbert, and Arnold Myers for The Science of Brass Instruments (Cham, Switzerland: Springer Nature, 2021); and Robert Adelson for Erard: A Passion for the Piano (New York: Oxford University Press, 2021).
