BSO Earns Multiple Grammy Nominations

12/07/2009 12:05:00 AM
Did you guys pick up copies of the new BSO album releases when I first told you about them at the start of the year (here)? If you didn't yet, you're going to want to now, because one of those recordings just earned the BSO three Grammy nominations.

James Levine and the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s recording of Ravel’s complete Daphnis and ChloĆ©, featuring the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, John Oliver, conductor, has been nominated for Grammy Awards in the categories of Best Classical Album, Best Orchestral Performance, and Best Engineered Album, classical, for the 52nd annual Grammy Awards, scheduled to take place on January 31, 2010. These are the first nominations for the orchestra on its label BSO Classics.

Also nominated in three categories is Chris Botti’s CD/DVD, In Boston, recorded with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall on September 18 and 19, 2008. Chris Botti’s In Boston has been nominated for Best Pop Instrumental Album, Best Instrumental Arrangement, and Best Long Form Music Video.

I'm going to have to dig up my copy and give it a listen. I listened to all four of them when I first got them, but subsequently put them away. Time to give it another whirl.
