Quartet SF earns Grammy nod

Quartet San Francisco's new CD, Whirled Chamber Music, which features seven rocking string quartet arrangements of Raymond Scott compositions, has been nominated for a 2008 Grammy Award in the Best Classical Crossover category.

The AllMusic Guide calls Whirled "an extraordinary, strings-only counterpart to clarinetist Don Byron's Bug Music -- rapidly spinning, jazzy, contemporary-sounding chamber music."

This is the second consecutive QSF project to achieve the distinction. Their previous CD, Látigo, was nominated in 2006.
