Her Master's Grammy

The awards received by the Grammy winners last week are surprisingly modest. This is the actual Grammy for Best Classical Album won by Carlo Maria Giulini & Itzhak Perlman and EMI producer Christopher Bishop for their recording of the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1978. Christopher Bishop was a double Grammy winner, the other was for Best Choral Performance with André Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus' recording of Rachmaninov's The Bells in 1976. Playing the part of Nipper is Christopher's 11 year old King Charles Cavalier, Lucy.
