Classical Grammy Awards
Posted by Brian Reinhart on January 31, 2010, 11:10 pm
The winners should be announced sometime in the next 24 hours. Look for the Naxos Bernstein Mass to win Best Classical Album; my (forthcoming) review for this site argues it is "the kind of album that wins every award there is" and I had the Grammys especially in mind, given their bias towards American performers and important outside-the-repertoire music.
The Grammy nominees:
Best Classical Album
Bernstein: Mass [Naxos]
Mahler: 8 [San Francisco Symphony]
Ravel: Daphnis et Chloe [Boston Symphony]
Ravel: L'Enfant et les Sortileges [Naxos]
Shostakovich: The Nose [Mariinsky]
Complete list here: http://www2.grammy.com/GRAMMY_Awards/52nd_show/list.aspx#27
Nominated for multiple albums are conductors Valery Gergiev and Antoni Wit.
