A first Grammy for Yannick: Best Orchestral Performance

April 4, 2022. Yesterday, during a pre-gala in Vegas, Yannick Nézet-Séguin won a prestigious Grammy award for the best orchestral performance. This Grammy, he shares it with his Philadelphia Orchestra, which is the first Grammy in 120 years of existence. The recording of Symphonies Nos 1 and 3 by Florence Price was made by Deutsche Grammophon. Yannick said he was very happy, especially for the posthumous victory of Florence Price, an African-American composer whose immense talent was not sufficiently recognized during her lifetime!
