Northern Sinfonia, Orchestra of The Sage Gateshead, has had a CD nominated for a GRAMMY award.
Conductor Claudio Cruz recorded the world-premiere recording of Hans Gál’s Cello Concerto, coupled with Elgar’s Cello Concerto.
It has been nominated in the Best Classical Instrumental Solo category.
“Superb first recording of his Cello Concerto… could hardly be more eloquently served than here: the commanding Brazilian virtuoso Antonio Meneses surmounts every hurdle with ease and he is backed to the hilt by his compatriot Claudio Cruz at the helm of a notably alert Northern Sinfonia.”
