The Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings label has been nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Special Limited Edition Package” category for its edition of the radio recordings of the Berliner Philharmoniker with Wilhelm Furtwängler, which was released last spring. The recordings from 1939 to 1944 were carefully restored and digitalised using state-of-the-art technology. The lavishly produced 22 CD/SACD hardcover edition includes numerous historical photos and articles on the making of the recordings.
The Grammys are among the most prestigious international awards for musicians and production teams. The Berliner Philharmoniker have received several Grammys and most recently were nominated for a John Adams edition in 2018. Whether the Furtwängler edition ultimately wins the award will be announced at the next Grammy ceremony on 26 January.
