Contrary to popular belief their are Claccical Grammy awards grammy.com. The awards is set for February 12. About a month away from now just before Valentines Day. I have seen the list of nominations. There are many composers whos names I don't recognize Best contemporary clasical has some interesting nominations. One interesting looking album is Michael Daughert's "Tales of Hemingway" on the Naxos lable. I have never been a fan of Hemingway. He was not a good role modle. He was given a Novel Prize for Literature in 1954. there were other people more deserving. I have only read one story of his "A Farewell to Arms" over 30 years ago in a literature class that I did not do good in and did not want to take. Another interesting looking one is Bates: 'Anthology of Fantistic Zoology".
In the Best classical Compendium another album by Daugherty based on Hemingway "Tales of hemingway; american Gothic; Once upon a Castle is nominated. Vaughn Williiams Discoveries on the Albion lable is listed. I am a fan of Ralph Vaugn_Williams (1872-1958), and Zappa 200 Motels on the Universal Lable. I would asume that it is Frank Zappa. The Father of Moon Unit Zappa.
For Best Opera Handle's "Giulio Cesare" (Julius Cesare) on the Decca lable is listed is listed along wiht John Corigliano's "The Ghosts of Versailles" Handle's operas are not popular today. The Operas of his time were different.
During Handles's time untill the end of the 18th century female rollse were sung by the Castrati (aka male supranos). This was also done in theater. In the Movie "Shakespear in Love" with Gweneth Paltrow there is a referene to males playing female parts.
We will see in a month which albums get the Grammys.
