Today's NY Times report on the Grammys does not even include the word "classical." The Guardian doesn't either, but at least it provides a link to the Grammy site where there's a list of the winners and other nominees. For the general public, it seems that classical music isn't even a niche - it simply doesn't exist.

Other winners not mentioned by stenka razin:

Best Orchestral Performance: Shostakovich, Symphony #10 - BSO conducted by Andris Nelsons

Best Classical Compendium (?!): Paulus: Three Places Of Enlightenment; Veil Of Tears & Grand Concerto

It sure is Stephen Paulus's year.

Well, a belated recognition of the late Stephen Paulus. That is almost as much as can be expected of the Grammys, in terms of recognizing Contemporary Music, a realm where they are totally lost if there is no entry under the name John Williams.

You'll be happy to know that I do have the Nelsons Shostakovich X, and it is indeed excellent. As for the rest, until now nothing has drawn my attention to them, so I am ignorant as to the quality.

I am surprised that neither Become Ocean or Magnus Lindberg received awards.

Apparently no mention of Boulez's passing despite the fact that he received 26 Grammy's

Oh, I thought that Lady Ga-Ga performed a tribute to Boulez . . . .

I'm interested in the Ravel L'Enfant--I'm curious for hearing any performance of his two operas.
If I could tell my mom and dad
That the things we never had
Never mattered we were always ok
Getting ready for Christmas day
--Paul Simon
