Mariss Jansons wins 100 grand
April 21, 2017 by norman lebrecht
The Bavarian Radio music director does not play the horses or the lottery, so far as we know.
His windfall comes today in the form of the 2018 Léonie Sonning Music Prize, awarded each year to an outstanding international performer.
All Jansons has to do to collect the money is to turn up in Copenhagen and conduct the Royal Danish Orchestra on March 9, 2018, according to Danish Radio.
