Graciously inviting voting members of
the Recording Academy to check out
Giantess and Vox.
Innova Recordings submitted my album Giantess for GRAMMY® consideration in the categories of Best Classical Compendium for Giantess, Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Shulamit Ran’s Birds of Paradise, and Best Chamber Music and Small Ensemble for Vox. Please listen to the albums here and read more about the albums here.
These projects are my heart, and it’s been my joy to share these with the world. If you have a moment to listen, I’d appreciate it greatly. You can find them on my website (Jennie@JennieBrownFlute.com) or on Spotify, Amazon, and most other platforms. Giantess is comprised entirely of commercial release premieres of works by Carter Pann, Shulamit Ran, Valerie Coleman, Augusta Read Thomas, and Misook Kim. The theme of the album is centered on the universality of suffering, courage, and resilience, and dedicated to my late grandmothers, who exemplified these strengths all the days of their lives. Birds of Paradise is a work that embodies this theme, and I was especially fortunate to instigate the commission. Vox celebrated the 90th birthday of George Crumb with this recording of Vox Balaenae and connected works by Stacy Garrop, Carter Pann, and Narong Prangcharoen.
Good words about the album
