World’s biggest composer’s prize goes to a Danemain
The Grawemeyer Award was announced last night.
The winner is Bent Sorensen.
He takes home $100,000.
It so happens that Sorensen, 59, has a piece being premiered on Thursday by the New York Philharmonic. No-one in NY media seems to have noticed.
The award-winning piece is called ‘L’isola della Città’ – Island in the City.
