Gramophone is primarily in the business of reviewing classical music CDs; if they (to employ the British usage!) are also selling them, it raises the question of editorial independence -- presumably, a glowing review in the magazine could lead someone to buy the CD under review, which Gramophone will also sell to you for its own profit.
The Grammy Awards, originally called the Gramophone Awards, were established in 1958.
We then discovered the actual Golden Gramophone was sent to us by mail; there was no grand hand-over on the day.
By coincidence, I just filed my review of Anne's new CD to Gramophone Magazine after having previewed her Pasadena debut with it on Saturday night for HuffPost Arts!
And in the scratchy old phonograph recordings Nellie Melba made for the Gramophone and Typewriter Company in the comfort of her drawing-room in Cumberland Terrace (ca. 1904), you can clearly hear the voice of the sound engineer from behind a screen give the diva her cue by shouting “Go!” when the clunky recording apparatus was successfully set in slightly arduous motion.
Only days before he had been duetting fabulously as pianist with Joyce DiDonato at the Gramophone Awards in a languorous version of "Over the Rainbow", on balance a piece that does bear frequent repetition though I can see I may regret that remark.
