The 2020 GRAMMY Awards air this Sunday night! One of the GRAMMY-nominated classical albums we've had our eye on this year is Marsalis: Violin Concerto, Fiddle Dance Suite / Nicola Benedetti, Cristian Macelaru, Philadelphia Orchestra, Nominated for: Best Classical Instrumental Solo; Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

Why we love it: In our Instant Replay: 006, Chris Voss wrote: "Such a cool new album, featuring a violin concerto and a dance suite written for violinist Nicola Benedetti by jazz-master Wynton Marsalis. Both pieces fuse the classical, jazz, and folk worlds into a brilliantly enticing listen, and I highly recommend listening to the whole album once, then twice, then over and over."
