Another Grammy nomination for Albany Symphony Orchestra

aso recording rouse album coverThe list of nominees for this year's Grammy awards is out today -- and the Albany Symphony Orchestra has snagged another nomination.

A recording of Christopher Rouse's Seeing and Kabir Padavali by the ASO was nominated for best classical solo vocal album. The album features soprano Talise Trevigne and pianist Orion Weiss, and the ASO conducted by David Alan Miller.

The performance of Seeing was recorded at EMPAC in June of 2013. And Kabir Padavali was recorded at the Troy Music Hall in February of 2013.

Back in 2013 Amy Biancolli wrote about Seeing and the ASO's performance of it -- including the strong response it prompted in some people -- for the Times Union.

The ASO won a Grammy -- its first -- last year in the best classical instrument solo category.
