Violinist Hadelich and Seattle Symphony win Grammy for Best Classical Instrumental Solo with Dutilleux violin concerto

Congratulations are in order for violinist Augustin Hadelich and the Seattle Symphony under Ludovic Morlot for winning the Best Classical Instrumental Solo (category 78) at the Grammy Awards for their recording of Dutilleux's "L'arbre des songes."

The Boston Symphony under Andris Nelsons won the Best Orchestral Performance (category 74) for their performance of Shostakovitch's Symphony No. 10. That beat out both the Seattle Symphony's Dutilleux recording and the Oregon Symphony's "Spirit of the American Range" recording as well as the Pittsburgh Symphony's recording of Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 and the New Zealand Symphony's recording Symphony 'Humen 1839' by Zhou Long and Chen Yi.
