Hindemith Prize goes to someone you never heard of

Such a relief to report that an award has been made for future promise rather than long-distant achievement.

Richer today by 20,000 Euros is the Austrian composer Bernd Richard Deutsch.

(When they have three names, you’ve generally never heard of them).

He’s 37, lives in Vienna and was recently signed by Boosey & Hawkes.
