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."
