Bent Sørensen wins Grawemeyer award
The 2018 University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition for his piece L'isola della Città. This composition is a triple concerto for violin, cello and piano and orchestra in five movements. It was premiered last January by the Danish ensemble Trio con Brio and The Danish National Symphony Orchestra.
Sørensen will receive the award — a prize of $100,000 — in April 2018. He will then also present a free lecture about his ideas.
