The 2016 Grammy Awards, the top honors in the U.S. music business, were held on February 15th, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Taylor Swift won the award for the best album of the year.
She is the first female singer to win the award twice, also winning the awards for the best pop vocal album, and the best music video.
Meanwhile, Japanese maestro Seiji Ozawa won a Grammy Award for the best opera recording for his performance of Maurice Ravel’s opera “L’Enfant et Les Sortileges” or “The Child and the Spells”.
He conducted the opera in 2013 in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, by the Saito Kinen Orchestra as part of its festival.
Ozawa served as a music director at the Boston Symphony Orchestra for about 30 years, and was also the music director at the Vienna State Opera.
The 80-year-old director has been nominated for Grammy many times, but this is his first time of winning.
