The list of 2015 Grammy nominations has been published – and Anna Clyne’s Prince of Clouds is in the running for Contemporary Classical Composition. Her work shares the ballot with John Luther Adams (Become Ocean), George Crumb (Voices From The Heartland), Stephen Paulus (Concerto For Two Trumpets & Band), and Roberto Sierra (Sinfonia No. 4).

Also nominated in the Chamber Music/Small Ensemble category is the recording of Hilary Hahn’s “27 Pieces”. We wrote about this when the project was first announced. Among the commissions are works by Franghiz Ali-Zadeh, Lera Auerbach, Tina Davidson, Jennifer Higdon, Bun-Ching Lam, Michiru Oshima, Kala Ramnath, Gillian Whitehead, and Du Yun. The album was released by Deutsche Grammophon.
