Pop acts like Daft Punk and Lorde grabbed most of the air time, but there was plenty for classical fans to celebrate at Sunday night's Grammy Awards. 

A disc of Sibelius recordings by the Minnesota Orchestra snagged an award for Best Orchestral Performance, edging out the late Claudio Abbado, a fellow nominee. Abbado was mentioned during the evening's tribute to musicians who passed away over the past year.

Pianist Lang Lang turned in a frenetic performance alongside Metallica.

And while composer Caroline Shaw didn't capture a Grammy, the album by her vocal chamber group Roomful of Teeth did. The disc features the complete composition for which Shaw was nominated.
