“In-house orchestra labels had a particularly strong showing in the nominations for the 57th Grammy Awards, which were announced on Friday afternoon,” writes Brian Wise on Friday (12/5) at WQXR’s blog. “Dominating the orchestral categories are Seattle Symphony Media (three nominations), the Atlanta Symphony’s ASO Media (two different albums, each receiving one nod), and Berlin Philharmonic Recordings (one nod). Seattle scored two further nominations with its recording of John Luther Adams’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Become Ocean, released on the Cantaloupe label.” Nominees also included the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (best orchestral recording); Kansas City Symphony Orchestra (best classical solo vocal album); Orchestra 2001 and the Nashville Symphony (best contemporary classical composition); the San Francisco Symphony (best musical theater album); and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (best engineered classical album).
