The prize annually awards an exceptionally talented Guildhall School musician with a Wigmore Hall recital.

The prize involved Häßler singing in front of a jury which included the Wigmore Hall's director, John Gilhooly, the Guildhall School’s Director of Music, Jonathan Vaughan, and IMG’s Senior Vice President and Co-Director Nicholas Mathias. Martin Häßler is the second prize winner at Thomas Quasthoff's Das Lied, he currently studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
