DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON SCOOPS SEVEN NOMINATIONS AT THE 62nd GRAMMY AWARDS

 

20 November 2019 – The nominations for the 62nd GRAMMY Awards were announced earlier today. The Grammy, which recognizes both artistic and technical achievement, is the recording industry’s most prestigious award. This year, Deutsche Grammophon has received no fewer than seven nominations. Particularly significant is the wide range of categories in which this historic but innovative label has been recognized.

 

“My warmest congratulations to all our Grammy nominees! We’re thrilled to receive such an incredible number of nominations,” says Dr Clemens Trautmann, President Deutsche Grammophon. “The Yellow Label has long been known for the exceptional quality of its recordings, but what’s especially rewarding for us is to see such a diverse selection of our work nominated – from a piano recital to a full-scale audiovisual opera recording, from German Romantic repertoire to the US avant-garde, and from up-and-coming talent to legends of the music world, not to mention two nods for our film/television music productions. My sincerest thanks go to all our artists and of course to the entire DG team.”

 

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will take place on 26 January 2020 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
