The venerable German record label Deutsche Grammophon has just signed Schiller. No, not Friedrich Schiller, the poet and playwright whose "Ode to Joy" is the text for the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (which has been recorded on DG by Karajan, Bernstein and many other major maestros). We're talking the platinum-selling German electronica band Schiller, which is named after said Friedrich. Classical music mavens online are outraged. Bloggers, ever busy bees, buzz.

When Tift Merritt saw "Grammy" as the subject of e-mail after e-mail last December, her first reaction was, "Oh. Someone we know must have been nominated." The idea that she had been selected just didn't seem likely. But there the 30-year-old Texas native was, in the big leagues, with her Southern-fried "Tambourine" competing for best country album against country institution Loretta Lynn and chart-toppers Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Gretchen Wilson.

Acclaimed alt-country singer Tift Merritt has stretched out on her new album, "Another Country," broadening her voice and repertoire in meaningful ways without abandoning her roots. Writing her newest material during several months in Paris couldn't help but inspire change in the North Carolina artist, though not everyone is happy about it. A few critics are openly alarmed. But Merritt's nearly 90 minutes at the Troubadour on Thursday suggested growth, not confusion.
