Take note – story published 5 years and 4 months ago

Orchestral conductor Andris Nelsons added to his already extensive collection of Grammy Awards February 10.

The 61st iteration of the US' leading music industry awards saw Nelsons collecting a statuette for Best Orchestral Performance for his recordings of Shostakovich Symphonies 4  and 11 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

The recording also won in the category for Best Engineered Classical Album (Shawn Murphy & Nick Squire, engineers; Tim Martyn, mastering engineer) from the mind-bogglingly long list of winners and nominees in every imaginable genre and sub-genre.

Nelsons collected a Grammy in 2016 in the same category for his recordings of Shostakovich's Symphonies 5, 8 and 9 and his first in 2015 for his recording of Shostakovich 10, making the Nelsons/Shostakovich combination an extremely successful one.
