The 2017 Grammy awards have been handed out with many surprises in the Classical categories.

Pentatone Music went home with two Grammys for Corigliano’s “The Ghosts Of Versailles.”  The categories included Best Opera Recording and Best Engineered Album. Among the winners in the categories for engineering were Mark Donahue, Fred Vogler & David L Williams.

The performers who won for Best Opera Recording included the LA Opera Orchestra, LA Chorus, conductor James Conlon and singers Joshua Guerrero, Christopher Maltman, Lucas Meachem, Patricia Racette, Lucy Schaufer and Guanqun Yu. Producer Blanton Alspaugh also won.

There was an unprecedented tie in the Best Classical Solo Vocal Album. Dorothea Röschmann and Mitsuko Uchida won for their Decca CD  entitled “Schumann & Berg.” The other album was “Shakespeare Songs” by Ian Bostridge and Antonio Pappano. The album was released by Warner Classics.

The awards were presented in a separate ceremony before the main event that included performances by Beyonce and where Ariana Grande, Adele, Beyonce, Justin Bieber and Drake are up for Album of the Year.
