Anna Netrebko has been nominated for the Classical Brit Awards 2009 in the category "Female Artist of the Year" for her albums La Bohème and Souvenirs. Russian opera diva Anna Netrebko already got the Classical Brit Award in this category last year. Australian-born soprano Danielle de Niese and trumpeter Alison Balsom, named young British classical performer of the year only three years ago, are in the running for the same award. The full nominations will be unveiled tonight at the Mayfair Hotel. The winners will be announced at the Royal Albert Hall on 14 May 2009.
