The WALTER LEGGE Award is presented each year for
outstanding contribution to the world of recording
classical music.

For 2005, this Award is presented in honor of the late
President of Columbia Records, GODDARD LIEBERSON.
Goddard Lieberson (1911-1977), joined Columbia in
1939. From a non existant department, he built the
classical division of Columbia into one of the world’s
leading classical recording companies.
He was largely responsible for the introduction of the
LP record in the late 1940′s.
In the non classical area, he made popular the
recording and issuing of original cast and soundtrack
albums.


We wish to thank over 300 record collectors and 85
record companies worldwide for contributing to the
CLASSICAL RECORDING INDUSTRY HALL of FAME 2005 Awards.
If you or your organization would like to participate
in the 2006 Award selection process, please contact us
