The Boston Symphony Orchestra Won Another Grammy
In Boston, even our orchestras pick up a few pieces of hardware.
The Boston Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andris Nelsons won a Grammy for Best Orchestral Performance, for their Deutsche Grammophon recording Shostakovich Under Stalin’s Shadow, which includes Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphonies No. 5, 8, and 9. It was released last May to universal acclaim.
“It’s unbelievable and such a great honor,” Nelsons told the Globe. “The music of Shostakovich has touched people, and touched the human heart. That’s the biggest accomplishment for us musicians.”
