David Wright’s “Dreams & Distant Moonlight” wins best album 2008.

The David Wright 2008 instrumemtal music CD release “Dreams and Distant Moonlight” was winner of the best CD 2008 at the German Schallwelle Music awards in Dinslaken, Germany on Saturday 21st March 2009. A genuinely surprised David Wright joked; “I thought I was getting best young newcomer” as he accepted the award and complemented the other albums in the category, which included Spyra, Ron Boots and Rainbow Serpent. David was also nominated in the best artist category, and that deservedly went to Spyra.

The awards ceremony was well attended and there was a good feeling about the whole day. Well organized, with a lot of familiar faces, the speeches included some great anachdotes from Mario Schonwalder, Bernd Kistenmacher, Klaus Hoffmann and Harold Grosskopf and was expertly compared by Sylvia Sommerfeld and Stefan Erbe.

The highlight though was undoubtably the lifetime achievement award to the German radio anchorman Winfried Trenkler. Clearly a hugely popular person amongst musicians and fans alike, Winfried was clearly very emotional at the long ovation he received but it was richly deserved for his huge contribution to electronic music and space music.
