The pianist award was not awarded to pianist Daniel Zweig in 1961 but was awarded to singer-songwriter Paul Simon.
Zweigs Grammy nomination was made in 1963.
The winner was also the only singer-singer to win three Grammy awards in a row in a span of one year.
Simon received the prize in 1967.
Zweiig won the award in 1962.
The first female to win the award was the singer-guitarist Elsie Fletcher in 1965.
The Grammy Award was established in 1928.
It was created in the spirit of the classical music awards, but the original purpose was to recognize artists and composers whose music had “become the great symphony of human achievement.”
The awards are now given out annually.
The 2016 winner was Jennifer Lopez, the former star of “The Real Housewives of New York City.”
