Flash: Ilya Gringolts gets a Grammy!

October 11, 2006 at 4:23 AM

I just read the news about the 2006 Classic FM Gramophone Awards and learned that the winner in the chamber music category is Taneyev Chamber Music featuring Mikhail Pletnev, Vadim Repin, Ilya Gringolts, Nobuko Imai, and Lynn Harrell. Here is some information from Deutsche Grammophon’s microsite for the CD.

This is "a recording with rarely-performed chamber music by the Russian composer Taneyev, who was a student of Tchaikovsky. The CD is an excellent recording by an all-star quintet, created by Mikhail Pletnev, [consisting of] Vadim Repin and Ilya Gringolts, two of the most exciting violinists of the younger generation from Russia, paired with Nobuko Imai (viola) and Lynn Harrell (cello), are distinguished established stars on their instruments – and the incomparable Mikhail Pletnev."

You can hear audio clips at DG’s microsite and learn more about Ilya here.

(No, I’m not Ilya’s paid publicist and I’m not trying to embarrass him.)

Congratulations, Ilya!
