The Delaware Symphony Orchestra’s CD, The Book of Signs, was nominated as one of five Best Classical Album entries for the 19th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. The album, the DSO’s premiere recording on the Naxos label, features Music Director David Amado and the DSO with the Brasil Guitar Duo performing Cuban composer Leo Brouwer’s “The Book of Signs” and “Concerto Caboclo” by Brazilian composer Paulo Bellinati.

“What an honor it is to have had our recording selected, from among so many, for Best Classical Album,” said Amado. “What is remarkable to me about this is that it celebrates not only the high quality of music-making on the disc, but also the importance of new music. I am very proud of the DSO, the Brasil Guitar Duo, and the whole team involved in its creation.  We’ve made something really special, and it is an honor to have that recognized in such a visible, global way.”
