The 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards

February 16, 2016

Giancarlo Guerrero

Naxos is delighted to be among the recipients of this year’s GRAMMY awards. The label was the winner in the Best Classical Compendium category for its American Classics Series recording of works by Stephen Paulus: Three Places of Enlightenment, Veil of Tears and Grand Concerto. The Nashville Symphony Orchestra is conducted on the disc by Giancarlo Guerrero who has enjoyed a strong working relationship with the composer for many years.

Released in October 2014, the disc quickly met with numerous plaudits, including this from Gwyn Parry-Jones of MusicWeb International: “All in all, a wonderful CD, and one I would passionately commend to anyone searching for a modern composer who is neither bamboozlingly obscure nor patronisingly accessible.”

Congratulations also go to Cedille, a label, which received a GRAMMY award as the winner in the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance category.
