NEW YORK, NY (December 6, 2012) – The Steinway & Sons record label has received its first Grammy®-award nomination as announced by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) on December 6, 2012. Renowned German singer Ute Lemper—along with her collaborators and fellow countrymen the Vogler Quartet and Stefan Malzew—has been nominated for Best Classical Vocal Solo for her album Paris Days, Berlin Nights.
Released in March 2012, Paris Days, Berlin Nights is a phenomenal exploration of post-war Europe through song. Ute Lemper considers herself “an ambassador to the European songbook of the Weimar years,” and this album grapples with the complex nature of this era by exploring its music. Her tremendous vocal and artistic talent has been recognized world wide, and a Grammy®-award nomination further solidifies Lemper’s place in contemporary vocal music.
