Grammys 2013: Classical nods for 'Ring,' L.A. Percussion Quartet

[This story has been updated.]

This year's Grammy Award nominees in the classical music categories feature a typically diverse mix of recordings, ranging from gargantuan undertakings such as the Metropolitan Opera's production of Wagner's "Ring" cycle operas, to more intimate albums like the newest release from the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet.

Among the more notable nominees are soprano Renee Fleming, the group eighth blackbird and composer Steven Stucky.

The L.A. Percussion Quartet received two nods for its album "Rupa-Khandha," in the categories of chamber-music performance and surround-sound album. Formed in 2008, the quartet consists of musicians Matthew Cook, Justin DeHart, Eric Guinivan and Nick Terry.

Another L.A. group, Partch, was nominated in the classical compendium category for its album "Bitter Music."
