Everyone knows that the St. Louis Symphony is one of the premier orchestras in the world. The latest Grammy nominations simply seal the deal.
St. Louis' globally renowned ensemble is up for two Grammys centered on its Nonesuch Records recording of John Adams' City Noir, a piece about Los Angeles in the '40s and '50s that the composer describes as "jazz-inflected symphonic music." During the February 8 awards ceremony, SLSO has the opportunity to take home prizes for "Best Orchestral Performance" and "Best Engineered (Classical) Album."
"It is wonderful to be recognized for what we are doing all the time, in the concert hall and in the community," says music director and conductor David Robertson. "People who have known the orchestra for decades have been writing to tell me they have never heard the group sounding as good as it does now. It takes a whole team to produce such results, and I could not be more proud to have this nomination as proof of the blessing we have with the SLSO."More »
