Marc Regnier, an associate professor at College of Charleston and classical guitarist has been nominated for a Grammy. He was nominated in the Best Chamber Performance category for his recording of the chamber and solo works of Brazilian composer Radames Gnattali (Dorian/Sono Luminus).
According to the CofC website:
He has performed the works of Radames Gnattali for many years and wanted to dedicate an entire CD to the Brazilian maestro’s works. Regnier explains, ‘I discovered that there were very few recordings that devoted an entire CD to Gnattali’s works, and I knew it had to be a chamber recording due to the fact that this genre in the recording industry has been on the upswing for quite some time.’ In the recording, Marc Regnier is joined by fellow faculty members Tacy Edwards (flutist) and Natalia Khoma (cellist), and by Marco Sartor, Regnier’s former guitar student.
Regnier worked with Grammy-winning engineer, Leslie Ann Jones, and Marina and Victor Ledin, four-time nominee for “Classical Record Producer of the Year,” on the project.
The Grammy-nominated CD is available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. Winners of the 53rd annual GRAMMY Awards will be announced on February 13. To see the full list of nominees for classical music, click here.
