Trondheim Solistene has been nominated in the category for Best Small Ensemble Performance.
This is the first time a Norwegian CD has been nominated in three categories. Only two Norwegian performers - Leif Ove Andsnes and Truls Mørk - have been nominated before for GRAMMY awards, and only Truls Mørk has actually received one. The prize for best sound production in surround was awarded for the first time in 2006. 2L (Lindberg Lyd) was also in 2006 nominated for their Surround Sound work with IMMORTAL NYSTEDT (2L29SACD).
The 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on February 8, 2009, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS.
These GRAMMY nominations are a strong motivation for us to further explore the extreme possibilities of surround sound. There is no method available today to reproduce the exact perception of attending a live performance. That leaves us with the art of illusion when it comes to recording music. As recording engineers and producers we need to do exactly the same as any good musician; interpret the music and the composer's intentions and adapt to the media where we perform.
