In 2014, Apollon Musagète Quartet, soprano Ruby Hughes and violinist Itamar Zorman receive Awards from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust (BBT) in recognition of their enterprising careers and distinctive talent. Apollon Musagète has founded a festival while its spiritual mentor, Apollo, is the inspiration for many of the key works it commissions. Ruby Hughes likes to seek out challenging and unusual repertoire, while Itamar Zorman continues to develop a distinguished international career performing at concert and chamber halls worldwide.

The Fellowships, awarded to musicians at an earlier stage in their careers, go to rising stars of the violin, piano, clarinet and horn. Benjamin Beilman and Gloria Campaner have a string of prestigious prizes and awards, as does Mark Simpson who forges a dual career as performer and composer. As well as being principal horn with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Alec Frank-Gemmill is also pursuing successful career as a soloist and chamber musician.

A Special Award goes to pianist and composer Kate Whitley who is passionately committed to bringing music to the most diverse and uninitiated audiences.
