I'm disappointed that Enso didn't win the Chamber Music Performance.  I've had the pleasure of not only seeing them perform on multiple occasions, but also being coached by them at Interlochen in the summer.  They are very passionate about what they do.

The Grammy Site link doesn't seem to work properly, just brings me back to Violinist.com.  :)

Thanks!  The lists of nominees are interesting, indeed.  I will be picking up some of the Chamber Music CDs, and definitely plan on getting Caroline Goulding's CD very soon.
