YEREVAN (Public Radio of Armenia) — Armenian-American conductor Constantine Orbelian has been nominated for Grammy Award together with the late Russian opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky.
Constantine Orbelian conducted the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra and the Russian folk music ensemble Style of Five for Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s latest album “Russia Cast Adrift,” which will compete for a Grammy in the “Best Classical Solo Vocal Album” nomination.
“Russia Cast Adrift” is the world premiere orchestral recording of neo-romantic composer Georgy Sviridov’s song cycle set to the vivid and moving poetry of Sergei Yesenin.
Another album featuring Constantine Orbelian featuring American tenor Lawrence Brawnlee singing with the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra, was nominated for a Grammy in 2015.
