Naxos Earns 15 GRAMMY Nominations

The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) honored Naxos, the Gramophone/Classic FM 2005 Label of the Year, with 15 GRAMMY Award nominations, the most of any classical music label this year and the most ever for Naxos.

The much-acclaimed recording of William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience led the way for Naxos with three nominations, including Best Classical Album, Best Choral Performance, and Best Classical Contemporary Composition. A CD of Bolcom’s songs with soprano Carole Farley earned two nominations for Best Engineered Album and Best Classical Vocal Performance.

Other contemporary composers whose Naxos discs were honored with nominations include Michael Daugherty, Kenneth Fuchs, and Peter Boyer.
