03/15/2021
Deutsche Grammophon artists Gustavo Dudamel, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Hildur Guðnadóttir have been honoured at this year’s GRAMMY Awards. The virtual ceremony of the 63rd GRAMMY Awards was broadcast last night by CBS in the United States and streamed internationally via GRAMMY.com. Recognising both artistic and technical achievement, the Grammy is the recording industry’s most prestigious award.
Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic took the coveted prize for Best Orchestral Performance with their recording of the four symphonies of Charles Ives. The works were captured by Deutsche Grammophon during highly acclaimed concert performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall and Charles Ives – Complete Symphonies was released worldwide in January 2021. The album was also nominated in the Best Engineered Album, Classical category.
Fellow DG artist Hildur Guðnadóttir, meanwhile, won the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media award for her soundtrack to Todd Phillips’ dark psychological thriller Joker.
“Many congratulations to Hildur Guðnadóttir, Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, who are all celebrating their second Grammy win in a row,” says Dr Clemens Trautmann, President Deutsche Grammophon. “Charles Ives – Complete Symphonies offers fresh insights into the music of a radical thinker, creator of what Leonard Bernstein called ‘his own private musical revolution’. Gustavo Dudamel’s special affinity for these rarely recorded masterworks is impressively conveyed through this brilliant rendition by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I’d like to thank everyone involved in this significant and successful project. We’re equally thrilled about this latest honour for Hildur Guðnadóttir, whose original and haunting film scores and unique musical language underline her status as one of the outstanding composers of our time.”
