Terrence Gets Grammy Nod
Posted December-03-10
Terrence has been nominated for two Grammy Awards (53rd Annual) for his recording of Michael Daugherty's Deus ex Machina (2007) for Piano and Orchestra, with the Nashville Symphony conducted by its Music Director, Giancarlo Guerrero on the NAXOS label. The album, METROPOLIS SYMPHONY, which also includes Daugherty's Metropolis Symphony (1993), has a total of five Grammy Award nominations for the following categories: BEST CLASSICAL ALBUM (Michael Daugherty, Nashville Symphony, Giancarlo Guerrero, Terrence Wilson), BEST ENGINEERED CLASSICAL ALBUM (engineers), BEST ORCHESTRAL PERFORMANCE (Nashville Symphony, Giancarlo Guerrero), BEST CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL COMPOSITION (Michael Daugherty for Deus ex Machina) and BEST SOLO INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMANCE WITH ORCHESTRA (Terrence Wilson, Giancarlo Guerrero). The album was produced by Blanton Alspaugh (who has nominations of his own for albums including METROPOLIS SYMPHONY), and engineered by John Hill, Mark Donahue, Dirk Sobotka, Kevin Edlin and Tim Miller. The album (NAXOS 8.559635) is a live recording from top to bottom and the recording of Deus ex Machina (tracks 6-8) is a world premiere. Terrence asked Daugherty to compose Deus ex Machina in 2005 and assembled a consortium of orchestras to co-commission the work, which was premiered on March 14, 2007 with the Charlotte Symphony, conducted by Giancarlo Guerrero. The piece was co-comissioned by the symphony orchestras of Charlotte, Nashville, New Jersey, Syracuse and the Rochester Philharmonic. The two categories for which Terrence could take home trophies are BEST CLASSICAL ALBUM and BEST SOLO INSTRUMENTALIST WITH ORCHESTRA. The awards ceremony will be held on February 13, 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA and will be nationally televised live on CBS.
