Russian Legendary Conductor Nominated for Grammy

One of the most successful conductors in the world, Russia's Valery Gergiev, has earned a 'best performance' Grammy nomination for Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances. The nomination concerns both the conductor and the London Symphony Orchestra, of which he is Principal Conductor.

      Valery Gergiev has been Principal Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra since 2007. The 59-year-old conductor has already received a Grammy nod for Massenet's performance of 'Don Quichotte' with the Soloists' Ensemble Of The Mariinsky Academy Of Young Singers and Mariinsky Orchestra.

      Besides, Gergiev has performed with many of the world’s most renowned musicians and orchestras, including the Wiener Philharmoniker, the orchestra of La Scala and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2010 he was officially named "the busiest conductor of the year", after performing 88 concerts in America and Europe.

      The 55th Annual Grammy Awards winners will be announced in Los Angeles, on February 10, 2013.
