Atlanta Symphony, Chorus factor into Grammy win for best engineered album

Engineer Michael Bishop won the Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album for his work on an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra recording on Sunday afternoon during the pre-televised portion of the 57th annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

The Atlanta Symphony Orcshestra's 2014 CD on its label ASO Media won a Grammy on Sunday.

Bishop won for his work on the ASO's Ralph Vaughan Williams CD on the orchestra's own ASO Media label.

Music director Robert Spano conducted the orchestra; Norman Mackenzie directed the chorus.

The ASO did not win in the other two categories for which it was nominated or shared a nomination: best orchestral performance (for Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. 6 & 7; Tapiola) and producer of the year (Elaine Martone was nominated for four albums, including the ASO’s Vaughan Williams).

The Vaughan Williams album included the compositions Dona Nobis Pacem; Symphony No. 4; and The Lark Ascending.
