Higdon’s ‘Cold Mountain’ nominated for 2017 GRAMMY Award
The Pentatone recording of Jennifer Higdon’s Cold Mountain, featuring Isabel Leonard as Ada, has been nominated for a 2017 GRAMMY Award in the “Best Opera Recording” category. The capture was taken during the 2015 season at Santa Fe Opera, in celebration of the work’s world premiere and was released to great critical acclaim: “Isabel Leonard was a beautiful, believable Ada, the richness of her mezzo evoking Ada’s reserve and desire.” (The Wall Street Journal)
