Ainadamar nominated for two Grammy awards
For the second year in a row, Osvaldo Golijov has received a Grammy nomination for Best Classical Contemporary Composition. The opera Ainadamar, released by Deutsche Grammophon in May, was nominated in that category and also in the Best Opera Recording category.

The recording features Dawn Upshaw as Margarita Xirgu, Kelley O'Connor as Federico García Lorca, and Jessica Rivera as Nuria — the same three artists who created the roles at the 2003 premiere and have performed them ever since. They are joined by the Women of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Robert Spano.

Last year, the song cycle Ayre was nominated for Best Classical Contemporary Composition. Prior to that, the 2002 EMI CD Yiddishbbuk and the 2000 recording of La Pasión según San Marcos have also received nominations.
