Alas, another Grammy-less year. Much to my chagrin Philip Glass remains unrecognized by the "Big Music" institution.
Paul Barnes, on a whirlwind tour celebrating the release of "The American Virtuoso" can be seen here in a series of videos in which he plays his transcriptions of Glass including the solo piano transcription of the Glass Piano Concerto No.2. This guy is a serious pianist.

“Songs and Poems” should have won two Grammys: best composition and best solo performance. Sutter’s performance is AMAZING. The Grammys are a total joke anyway.
I am not entirely 100 percent sure but it may be possible that Songs and Poems will be elligible next year.
