The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has been nominated at the Latin Grammy Awards for Best Classical Album of the Year. The announcement on 21st September applauded RSNO for its recent recording of the orchestral works of German-born American composer Samuel Adler.
José Serebrier Conducts Samuel Alder was the final recording made by the RSNO at the Orchestra’s former home, the Henry Wood Hall, Glasgow. The record was produced by Philip Hobbs and Robert Cammidge and released on Scottish label Linn Records. It features première recordings of the composer’s three-movement Symphony No6 as well as his Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, with Maximilian Hornung as soloist.
Conductor and multiple award-winning Uruguayan maestro José Serebrier, steered the orchestra to its second Latin Grammy nomination (the first being in 2005) and Chief Executive Dr Krishna Thiagarajan is over the moon: “I would like to thank the musicians and José for producing such a glowing tribute to Samuel Adler. To be recognised with this nomination is a great honour and highlights the mission of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to give a voice to composers through recordings, broadcasts and live performances. We wish all nominees well!”
The 17th Annual Latin Grammy Awards will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Thursday 17 November, 2016. Fingers crossed for a massive RSNO triumph.
