Grammys? Grammies?

I can't even spell it.

But am happy to have been included in the nominations lists with some much bigger players...

Vivaldi Bassoon Concerti Volume I - nominated for best solo/best producer
Canadian Concerto Project Volume I - nominated for best instrumental/best contemporary composition

Glenn Buhr's 'man will only grieve if he believes the sun stands still' is the nominated contemporary work.  This piece is based on the poetry of Margaret Sweatman and you can hear her singing them on her album Phenomenological Love Songs.

Our US label (we don't have a Canadian label... none of them wanted us!) tells us that the lists will go up in about a month and then the members of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) will vote, short-listing 5 candidates in each category.

Winners will be announced sometime in February, 2014.
