Leila Josefowicz wins $100,000

The Canadian violinist, 41 this month, was awarded the Avery Fisher prize last night at Lincoln Center.

She’s doing well on the prize circuit. This is her second Avery Fisher (the last was 1994), added to a MacArthur Fellowship, a Cummings Fellowship, and more.

    • She’s 41 with an established international career, what else are we looking for? Shouldn’t these grants go to players at the start of their careers?

  • Worth noting: the Avery Fisher Prize is very different than the Avery Fisher Career Grant. She won the Career Grant earlier, which is for rising artists, and the Prize is more prestigious.

  • She is a wonderful artist and given her support for composers who write for her, I suspect the money will be put to excellent and creative use.
