  • From 1988 to 1989 it was once again called Best Orchestral Recording
  • From 1990 to the present it has returned to being called Best Orchestral Performance

Until 1989, the Grammy Award went to the conductor only, but since then, the Orchestra has also been given an award (although the orchestras are not mentioned as a nominee).
