Grammys 2014: Maria Schneider dominates in classical categories
  New news | Editor's pick | Popular news  

American composer Maria Schneider dominated the classical music categories at the 2014 Grammy Awards on Sunday for her album "Winter Morning Walks," which features soprano Dawn Upshaw. The classical awards were handed out as part of the pre-show ceremony Sunday afternoon at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles.

It was a good day for contemporary composers, who took home the bulk of the classical honors this year. Schneider's "Winter Morning Walks" won three Grammys, including the prizes for classical composition and classical vocal solo album. The recording features Upshaw with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.

Schneider was on hand to accept her award and took the opportunity to lambast music piracy, calling it "legalized theft."
