Conductor Nelsons scoops another Shostakovich-inspired Grammy award

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.
