I believe that's an error. According to telarc.com (they should know), the orchestra is Atlanta. Mirror Vax 12:49, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
Also, the same recording won 'best album', so that's another thing to check. Mirror Vax 12:58, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

So two awards say "Atlanta" and one "Vienna". I also looked at the site you named and a few other places. I've reverted myself and will write to Grammy.com - thanks for spotting this :) -- sannse (talk) 15:30, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
