Hannigan is nominated as Singer of the Year. She vies for the award with fellow nominees Joyce DiDonato, Mark Padmore and Michael Volle in the category, whose previous winners include Susan Bullock.
Kopatchinskaja and Lugansky both receive nods as Instrumentalist of the Year, along with harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani.
The RPS Awards are the highest recognition for live music-making in the UK and are amongst the most highly prized of any in the industry. Last year’s winners included Conductor of the Year Kirill Karabits. The 2014 shortlists were chosen by independent juries of industry experts, from over 400 nominations.
2013 was a highly successful year for all three HarrisonParrott nominees: Barbara Hannigan was chosen as Musical Personality of the Year by the French Sindicat de la Critique; Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s disc of Hungarian concertos on Naïve won Gramophone’s Recording of the Year; and Nikolai Lugansky’s recording of Rachmaninov Sonatas, also on Naïve, won an ECHO Klassik Award.
The 2014RPS Award winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel on 13 May.
