[Richard Savino and the Grammys] [Music] >> I'm nominated for a Grammy as the Director/Conductor of my group, El Mundo, but I'm also one of the primary performers in the group. It's a funny sort of designation. It's in the small ensemble category. It's quite an honor to have been recognized by your peers in this matter. [Music] >> I formed El Mundo in 1989 as a vehicle to sort of launch some of my most creative projects, so we specialize in music from Italy, Spain and Latin America from the 17th through 19th centuries and the intention here is to play it on the instruments as closely as we can summize of the upoc. [Music] [And one of the reasons I play guitar is because of The Beatles.] [Music] >> You know, it was an epiphany for me. These guys were having fun.They wrote super creative music. They had a lot of energy, they improvised. And it was a confluence of popular music that then evolved into this what I considered to be one of the high art music of the 20th century within 5 years. And, if I had the chance to meet Paul McCartney, it would just make my life full circle. [Music] >> And I began experimenting with loots, and baroque guitars and from there it's just been this incredible explosion of senority for me. And what I love is the fact that everytime I pick up one of these instruments, another door opens. [Music] >> My life to start with is crazy. So, using that as a base of insanity that is my life, putting this on top of it, makes it just even crazier. I feel like a kid in a candy store. [Music]


2012 overhaul and 2013 renaming

In 2012 the category was combined with the Best Chamber Music Performance category.

The restructuring of these categories was a result of the Recording Academy's wish to decrease the list of categories and awards. According to the Academy, "the Chamber category was folded into the Small Ensemble category, the only distinction having been the number of players in the group (Chamber being smaller), and the fact that Small Ensemble recording could, though not necessarily, employ a conductor." [1] In the new structure, recordings are eligible if the ensemble contains 24 or fewer members, not including the conductor. There is one award for the ensemble and one for the conductor, if applicable.

In 2013, the category was renamed as Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
