Molomot’s “Captain” in Houston Symphony’s Wozzeck receives Grammy nomination

“Coming on the recent heels of winning the equivalent of a European Grammy known as the ECHO Klassik Award, the Houston Symphony has now earned a nomination for an American Grammy.

It’s in the category of Best Opera Recording, and it’s for their recording of Alban Berg’s Wozzeck, the title referring to the tragic main character who commits murder.
