--- 2009 ARSC AWARDS ---

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) is pleased to announce
the winners of the 2009 ARSC Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded
Sound Research. Begun in 1991, the awards are presented to authors and
publishers of books, articles, liner notes, and monographs, to recognize
outstanding published research in the field of recorded sound. In giving
these awards, ARSC recognizes outstanding contributions, encourages high
standards, and promotes awareness of superior works. A maximum of two awards
is presented annually in each category -- one for best history and one for
best discography. Certificates of Merit are presented to runners-up of
exceptionally high quality. The 2009 Awards for Excellence honor works
published in 2008. Additionally, a Lifetime Achievement Award and Award for
Distinguished Service to Historical Recordings are also presented annually.

2009 LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD: CRISTOBAL DIAZ-AYALA

ARSC annually presents a Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual, in
recognition of a life's work in recorded sound research and publication.

Cristobal Diaz-Ayala was born and educated in Havana, where he received
degrees in journalism, the social sciences, and law. He joined the flood of
emigres from there, in 1961.

His lifelong love of the music of his birthplace led him to study and
publish works on the history of Cuban music styles, their presentation on
stage, radio, and other media, and their appearance on historical sound
recordings from 1905 (the earliest known) to the present day. He has written
several books, including "San Juan - New York: Discografia de la Musica
Puertorriquena 1900-1942," published this year.

In 1994, Diaz-Ayala received the ARSC Award for Best Research in Recorded
Folk or Ethnic Music, for his book-length "Discografia de la Musica Cubana."

Diaz-Ayala was producer and host for "CUBANACAN," a long-running syndicated
radio series.

He became well known for assembling a major collection of sound recordings,
sheet music, and other ephemera that now resides at Florida International
University in Miami.


2009 AWARD FOR DISTINGUISHED SERVICE TO HISTORICAL RECORDINGS: WARD MARSTON

ARSC's Award for Distinguished Service to Historical Recordings honors a
person who has made outstanding contributions to the field, outside of
published works or discographic research.
In 1979, Ward Marston put himself on the map as one of the world's leading
transfer engineers with his restoration of the experimental Bell
Laboratories Wide Range and Stereophonic recordings of Leopold Stokowski and
the Philadelphia Orchestra, made in 1931 and 1932. Audiophiles and music
lovers alike were stunned by the remarkable recorded sound Marston was able
to extract from the Bell recordings. The painstaking manual synchronization
of the dual-band stereophonic recordings would be typical of the care and
attention to detail that Marston would bring to so many future projects.

Since that time, Marston's work has appeared on the labels of many major
record companies. His 11-CD collection devoted to the Victor recordings of
Fritz Kreisler, released in 1995, received a Grammy nomination for Best
Historical Album. Marston's other significant historical projects were: the
Franklin Mint Toscanini Collection, BMG's 10-CD Complete Rachmaninoff, the
12-CD Philadelphia Orchestra Centennial Collection, the complete recordings
of Josef Hofmann, and the complete recordings of Caruso for the Pearl and
Naxos labels.

In 1997, he formed his own record label, Marston, concentrating on the
reissue of recordings by performers neglected by the major record companies,
including an ongoing series devoted to the acoustically recorded, complete
operas on Pathe. His most recent achievements on his own label include the
Julius Block collection, a three-CD collection of rare, privately-made
cylinder recordings featuring some of the most important musical
personalities of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The success of Marston's work over the past 30 years is a result of a rare
combination of musical knowledge and sensitivity, together with technical
skill.
