After seven previous Grammy nominations for his engineering efforts, veteran recording engineer and equipment designer Keith O. Johnson has received his first Grammy. Together with producer David Frost, "Professor" Johnson won Best Surround Sound Album (for vocal or instrumental albums) at the 53rd Annual Grammy® Awards.
Presented on Sunday, February 13, 2011, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Johnson and Frost's Grammy-honored Reference Recordings' hybrid multi-channel SACD, Britten's Orchestra (RR-120SACD). Performed by the excellent Kansas City Orchestra, conducted by Michael Stern, the recording includes The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra; Sinfonia da requiem; Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia, all by 20th century English master Benjamin Britten.
What is most interesting is that Johnson's Grammy came for his first surround-sound effort in SACD format, rather than for one of his fabled recordings in the HDCD process he developed and championed.
