Before the Grammy Awards broadcast Monday evening, awards for orchestral recordings and engineering were given. On the list: best classical instrumental solo, for Augustin Hadelich’s performance on the symphony’s disc “Dutilleux: Violin Concerto, L’Arbre Des Songes.” The SSO released the album on its in-house label.
The orchestra was the only local nominee to win on Monday; Death Cab for Cutie, Bill Frisell, Brandi Carlile and Sub Pop Records all earned nods but didn’t win.
The Dutilleux work was also nominated for best orchestral performance (the winner was Boston Symphony Orchestra with conductor Andris Nelsons, for “Shostakovich Under Stalin’s Shadow – Symphony No. 10”) and best engineered classical album (the 2016 winner is “Ask Your Mama,” with George Manahan and San Francisco Ballet Orchestra).
Last year, the SSO received six nominations and won its first Grammy, for best contemporary classical composition, for John Luther Adams’ “Become Ocean.” The symphony commissioned and performed the world premiere of the piece, for which Adams also won a Pulitzer.
