2012 Grammy® Nominees Announced

December 10, 2012

On December 5, 2012, artists, engineers, and composers from the Naxos distribution family were honoured with 15 GRAMMY® nominations on 9 labels including Naxos, Cedille Records, DSO Live, Oehms Classics, Ondine, Opus Arte, OUR Recordings and Sono Luminus. The honours for these artists appeared in the categories of Best Choral Performance, Best Opera Recording, Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance, Best Contemporary Classical Composition, Best Surround Sound Album and Best Engineered Album (Classical). Producer of the Year, Classical, nominations were also bestowed upon two producers whose bodies of work include many Naxos-distributed recordings.

Artists from a Naxos recording were nominated in a brand new GRAMMY® category, Best Classical Compendium. Conductor Antoni Wit and producers Aleksandra Nagórko and Andrzej Sasin were nominated for their work on a recording of six orchestral works of Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki which covers almost 50 years of the composer’s extensive oeuvre.
