CBC Radio 2 In Concert host Paolo Pietropaolo has won his second Prix Italia for the Signature Series, his compelling, accessible and entertaining ongoing series on the character of each key in Western music.

The public broadcaster announced the news on its CBC Music website.

“This is such an enormous thrill,” responded Pietropaolo in the CBC Music post. “I’ve always believed that classical music is most of all a visceral experience. It can make your heart pound. It can make your heart soar. It’s not about formalities or a hushed concert hall; at its best, all music touches the essence of what makes us human. That’s what this series is about, and it’s wonderful to have confirmation that this kind of exploration of music is valued.”

You can check out the series, which is co-produced by Denise Ball, here.

Italian broadcaster RAI has been running the Prix Italia since 1948 to promote excellence in radio and television. Broadcasters’ online presences are now in the running for Prix Italia honours, as well.

Pietropaolo’s previous Prix Italia win came in 2005 for the series The Wire, which explored the relationship between electricity and music.
