Today’s 3rd prize is only 75k

The Austrian composer Thomas Larcher, 55, has been awarded Monaco’s Fondation Prince Pierre composition prize for his second symphony.

It’s only 75,000 Euros.

Hardly worth turning up.

    I think the motivation should be appreciated, apart from the result.

    As film music, one imagines a Tom & Jerry going terribly wrong.
