Minnesota's Beethoven--More Recognition

Posted at 8:45 AM on August 13, 2009 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

The nominees for this year's Gramophone awards, sometimes considered the Oscars of classical recording, have been announced, though there doesn't seem to be an online list quite yet.

Be that as it may--congratulations to the Minnesota Orchestra, nominated for their disc of Beethoven's Symphonies no. 2 and 7. (Looking across all the categories, they're one of only two American orchestras nominated, along with the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, for an opera recording.)

The awards come out on Oct. 3--best of luck to Osmo and the Orchestra!
