LOS ANGELESOn Tuesday, the Recording Academy announced its list of nominees for the 60th annual Grammy Awards. This year, awards will be given in 84 categories, split up across 29 different fields in the music industry.

In the category, Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, Armenian-American conductor Constantine Orbelian, nephew of the late Konstantin Orbelian (known by colleagues as the godfather of jazz in Armenia), was recognized for his work on the album, Svidirov: Russia Cast Adrift. The album features world renowned, Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky (who just last week lost his battle to brain cancer) singing the vocal music of the lesser known, neo-romantic Russian composer Georgy Sviridov (19151998) with the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra and Style Of Five Ensemble.



Seventy-eight year old composer Tigran Mansurian was recognized for hisfor his 2017 album Tigran Mansurian: Requiem, dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide. The composition was nominated in two categoriesBest Contemporary Classical Composition and Best Choral Performance.” The album’s producer, Manfred Eicher, was also nominated forProducer of the Year in the Classical genre.

According to the composers website, the composition reconciles the sound and sensibility of his countrys traditions with those of Western practices, the combination of ancient Armenian religious and secular music with the Latin Requiem text, giving rise to something unexpected. The Requiem is led by conductor Alexander Liebreich and performed by the RIAS Kammerchor and M?nchener Kammerorchester.



Born in Beirut in 1939, Mansurian repatriated to Soviet Armenia with his family in 1947. He is famous for his film scoring, notably in the iconic film The Color of Pomegranates by visionary Soviet filmmaker Sergey Parajanov. His album Monodia was nominated for Grammy Awards in 2005 in the categories “Best Instrumental Soloist(s) Performance (with Orchestra)” and “Best Classical Contemporary Composition.
