VC ‘Artist‘ Augustin Hadelich Awarded Classical Music Grammy Award

Italian-German VC ‘Artist’ Augustin Hadelich has just minutes ago been awarded the ‘Best Classical Instrumental Solo’ accolade at the 2016 Grammy Awards - in Los Angeles.

The 31 year old was recognized for his outstanding achievement in the music industry for his 2014 recording of Henri Dutilleux’s “L’arbre des Songes” Violin Concerto - with conductor Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.

"This is such a happy moment ..." Augustin has told The Violin Channel, “... I absolutely love the “L’arbre des songes” - it is such a beautiful, imaginative and exciting concerto ... and my sessions with the Seattle Symphony and Ludovic Morlot were amazing.”

“It's such a very exciting time - texts and emails have been flooding in!” Augustin has gleamed!


The ‘Best Opera Recording’ Grammy was awarded to conductor Seiji Ozawa for his Decca release of Ravel’s ‘L'Enfant Et Les Sortilèges’ and ‘Shéhérazade” - with the Saito Kinen Orchestra.

The 'Classical Producer of the Year' Grammy was awarded to Judith Sherman - her fourth time honoured with this accolade. 

The ‘Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance’ Grammy was awarded to the Chicago-based ensemble, Eight Blackbird - for their ‘Filament’ release on Cedille Records.

The 'Best Classical Solo Vocal Album' was presented to American mezzo-soprano, Joyce DiDonato and pianist Antonio Pappano for “Joyce & Tony - Live From Wigmore Hall” - on the Warner Classics/Parlophone label.
