Valery Gergiev, artistic and general director of the Mariinsky Theater, figures in three of the nominations for Grammy Awards that were announced Tuesday.

He conducts Sofia Gubaidulina's "Johannes-Passion," which was one of five nominees for Choral Performance and for Classical Contemporary Composition. It is performed by Genady Bezzubenkov, bass; Natalia Korneva, soprano; Viktor Lutsiuk, tenor; Fedor Mozhaev, baritone; Chamber Chorus of St. Petersburg and Chorus of the Mariinsky Theater; and Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater.

With violist Yury Bashmet, Gergiev was nominated for Instrumental Soloist(s) Performance (with Orchestra) for Gia Kancheli's "Styx" and Gubaidulina's "Viola Concerto."

The 45th annual Grammy Awards, the music industry's top prizes, are to be presented in 104 categories on Feb. 23 in New York.
