GRAMMY nomination for Magnus Lindberg's Graffiti (02.12.2010)

Graffiti (2009) by Magnus Lindberg has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Classical Contemporary Composition. The winners of the 53rd GRAMMY Awards will be announced in a ceremony held by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences on February 13, 2011.

For his first large-scale choral composition with orchestra written in 2009, Magnus Lindberg used a selection of 2000-year-old Latin graffiti inscriptions from the walls of excavated Pompeii houses. The work earned Magnus Lindberg a 2009 Finnish Composer Society's Award.

The GRAMMY nominated world première recording was released by Ondine in Spring 2010 to great international acclaim, including a recent nomination for the 2011 International Classical Music Awards. The recording features the Helsinki Chamber Choir and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sakari Oramo (ODE 1157-2).

Magnus Lindberg is one of the internationally best known Finnish composers of today and currently serves as Composer-in-Residence with the New York Philharmonic.
