A musical force in Chicago and around the world, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra has an expansive catalog of more than 900 recordings which earned 62 Grammy® Awards—more than any other orchestra in the world. In 2007, the CSO launched its in-house record label, CSO Resound. Featuring live concert performances by the CSO with world-class conductors and guest artists, CSO Resound showcases the power and versatility of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra today.
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus’ recording of Verdi's Messa da Requiem, led by Music Director Riccardo Muti, was awarded two Grammy Awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences at the 53rd annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13, 2011. The recording of Verdi’s Requiem won Best Classical Album, with statuettes awarded to Maestro Muti and Producer Christopher Alder, and Best Choral Performance, with statuettes awarded to Maestro Muti and Chicago Symphony Chorus Director Duain Wolfe.
In 2009, albums on CSO Resound won Grammy Awards for the first time. The recording of Shostakovich’s Fourth Symphony conducted by Bernard Haitink won Best Orchestral Performance, and the engineers of the album Traditions and Transformations: Sounds of Silk Road Chicago (David Frost, Tom Lazarus and Christopher Willis) were awarded the Grammy in the Best Engineered Album, Classical category. Traditions and Transformations features the CSO side by side with the Silk Road Ensemble, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and pipa player Wu Man in a fascinating musical tour that blended Eastern and Western influences.
