John Adams tripple grammy

Best Classical Contemporary Composition, Best Classical Album, and Best Orchestral Performance all went to the Nonesuch release of Adams's On The Transmigration Of Souls, as performed by New York Philharmonic, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and New York Choral Artists under the baton of Lorin Maazel.

Adams is the first-ever living composer to have won Best Classical Contemporary Composition three times, having previously won in 1989 for his opera Nixon in China and again in 1998 for his orchestral composition El Dorado.
