David Chesky's Area 31 receives Grammy Nomination for Best Engineered Album, Classical

SOURCE: Published: 2005-12-15
David Chesky's “Concertos For Violin And Orchestra", “Concertos For Flute And Orchestra", and “The Girl From Guatemala" have been nominated for Best Engineered Classical Recording for the 2005 GRAMMY Awards.

This orchestral recording was recorded by Chesky engineer Barry Wolifson of Sydney, Australia. As with all Chesky releases this session was recorded with one microphone, no overdubs, no compression, and the best audiophile microphone pre-amps and cables.

We're especially pleased to be bringing in our 20th Anniversary year on this note. In celebrating our first twenty years, we will release a special 20th Anniversary disc showcasing the best of our best, as well as David's All-Time Top Ten Favorite recordings. A list of these favorites is available on www.chesky.com.
