Lifetime achievement: Pierre Boulez


  • Nick says:

    Let’s add that the performance which won Michael Bishop the award for Best Engineered Recording was by the recently embattled Atlanta Symphony for its Vaughan Williams album. Bravi!

  • Shalom Rackovsky says:

    Brava, Anne Sofie, for another brilliant, genre-transcending album! And bravo, Bengt Forsberg, for another brilliant collaboration!

  • Dave T says:

    Add Pierre Boulez for lifetime achievement (or something like that).
