A Supraphon CD nominated for a Grammy Award
The Supraphon recording of Bohuslav Martinů’s Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4, made by the Czech Philharmonic and the conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, was nominated in Los Angeles at the 47th Grammy Awards in the Best Orchestral Performance category. It was a major achievement, also with regard to the fact that Martinů’s music is not as globally known as, for instance, that of Leoš Janáček. That year’s award went to a recording of John Adams’s On The Transmigration Of Souls, dedicated to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
