On Nov. 15 2018 in Las Vegas, USA, at the iconic MGM Grand Garden Arena, Floraleda Sacchi with composer Claudia Montero and producer José Domenech gets a Latin Grammy, category Best Classical Album, for the Harp Concerto Magica y Misteriosa.
The album was recorded in March 2018 in Prague with The City of Prague Philarmonic Orchestra, soloist Floraleda Sacchi (Harp) with the direction of Lucia Zicos. It was published in April 2018 by La Cupula Music and got in August 2018 the Melomano de Oro prize in Spain.
“My new production “Mágica y Misteriosa” completes my creative corpus of Strings with Strings… Dreams come true, this happens when your dream is intense and you struggle to achieve it”.
“Magica y Misteriosa” is a Concerto for Harp and Strings composed for and dedicated to Floraleda Sacchi by Claudia Montero.
Floraleda commented the victory that way:
“I am really happy to receive such prize because it is not easy for an Italian artist playing a style which is not the mainstream and with a special instrument such as the Harp to have the occasion to participate and win a Latin Grammy.
I am honored to work with such talented partners and grateful to the Academy for their choice.
I hope this will help to make my music known to a wider audience.”
