Grammy’s Classical Noms

The Grammy nominations are out, and the London Symphony’s live-to-tape Beethoven symphony cycle will be going up against a much-lauded new recording of Mahler’s 7th Symphony by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony for best classical album. Other notable nominees include Osvaldo Golijov’s Fountain of Tears in the opera category, pianist Martha Argerich for a live recording from the Lugano Festival, and the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson for her solo album entitled “Rilke Songs.”
