Just in: 400 grand award for Steve Reich

The US composer has won the prestigious BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Spain for his efforts to bridge cultures, ‘address current issues, from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to 11 September, and advance the relationship between religion and art and science’.

The award is worth 400,000 Euros and a fine Spanish dinner. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving composer.

  • That’s a matter of opinion

    Pretentious tinitus music in my opinion

    With the current state of Spain’s finances I would have thought they had more important things to spend their money on.
