Triple Grammy nominations for 2L

Acclaimed audiophile label/production company 2L receives triple Grammy nominations.

Acclaimed label and production company 2L, composer Ståle Kleiberg and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra all take home coveted Grammy nominations this week. 2L is nominated for no less than three recordings; ‘David & Bathsheba’, ‘Hymn To The Virgin’ and ‘La Voie Triomphale’ in two categories: ‘Best opera recording’ and ‘Best engineered album, classical’.

Since 2006, 2L have racked up no less than 17 American Gammy nominations. The label also received the honor of being triple nominated in 2008 and 2011.

Composer Ståle Kleiberg’s work ‘David & Bathsheba’ was recorded with the the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra in 2012 and is now nominated in the ‘Best Opera Recording’.

Ståle Kleiberg’s music is characterised by a highly distinctive form of extended tonality and by meticulous attention to coloristic details. He has composed several large-scale vocal works as well as orchestral and chamber music. His works are often featured on concert programmes in Norway and abroad. Most of his works are composed to commission, many of them from outstanding orchestras, ensembles and performers. Kleiberg’s music is also well represented in a recorded format, and several of his releases have received outstanding international reviews.
