The 59th Annual GRAMMYs were announced yesterday, including another consecutive award for Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony, and a tie in the Best Classical Vocal category for Ian Bostridge and Dorothea Röschmann.
Released in October 2015, Dorothea’s album of Schumann and Berg lieder with Mitsuko Uchida was hailed as “gorgeous … the perfect Lieder recital” by BBC Music Magazine. Dorothea shares the Best Classical Vocal award with Ian Bostridge and Antonio Pappano, for Shakespeare Songs, which also won Record Geijutsu magazine’s Record Academy Award at the end of last year.
Seattle Symphony Media wins its third consecutive GRAMMY Award for the third volume in the orchestra’s Dutilleux cycle, which features violinist Augustin Hadelich performing Sur le même accord, and a live performance of Timbres, espace, mouvement, all conducted by Ludovic Morlot.
Baritone Christopher Maltman and bass Nikolay Didenko feature on GRAMMY Award winning recordings with LA Opera and the Warsaw Philharmonic respectively.
The full list of winners can be found on the GRAMMYs website.
