The Seattle Symphony has more Grammy Awards than Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Diana Ross, The Beach Boys, Queen and The Doors combined. Those musical acts never won a Grammy Award. Last night, The Seattle Symphony won one.
SSO was nominated for other classical Grammys: Best Orchestral Performance (Dutilleux: Symphony No. 1: Tout Un Monde Lointain; The Shadows of Time); Best Classical Instrumental Solo (Xavier Phillips for the Dutilleux symphony); Best Engineered Performance (for Become Ocean) and SSO’s recording engineer, Dmitriy Lipay, was nominated for Producer of the Year.
