(November 15, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA) – The legendary Lalo Schifrin has won a Latin Grammy Award® on November 11th for Pampas, written expressly for the Broad Stage concert and recorded by Antonio Lysy for his release Antonio Lysy at The Broad: Music from Argentina. In addition, Schifrin will receive the Jay McShann Lifetime Achievement Award from The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame on November 16, 2010.
Pampas, earned Lalo his fifth Grammy in the Best Contemporary Classical Composition category. The recording evokes the magic and majesty of the Argentine plains. Maestro Schifrin describes, “It’s a very moving piece reflecting desolation and the infinite horizons of The Pampas, which is from my home country”.
The win for Schifrin’s current works comes on the heels of the announcement that he will receive the Jay McShann Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. The award recognizes the contributions Schifrin has made to jazz throughout his six-decade career.
“I feel very fortunate,” said Schifrin, “that even when I’m still writing and active they still consider a lifetime achievement award. I suppose it’s because of the sum of all of the things I’ve done so far.”
Composer Lalo Schifrin is a true Renaissance man. As a pianist, composer and conductor, he is equally at home conducting a symphony orchestra, performing at an international jazz festival, scoring a film or television show.
Schifrin has written over 100 film and television scores including Mission Impossible, Mannix, Cool Hand Luke, Bullitt, The Cincinnati Kid, Enter The Dragon, Amityville Horror, four of the Dirty Harry films, and more recently Abominable and the Rush Hour trilogy. Lalo Schifrin has now won five Grammys® (twenty-two nominations), one Cable ACE Award, and six Academy Award® nominations. His longtime involvement in both the jazz and symphonic worlds came together in 1993 as pianist and conductor for his on-going series of “Jazz Meets the Symphony” recordings. The seventh “Jazz Meets the Symphony” recording is planned for release in February 2011.
