The biennial Glenn Gould Prize for this year was awarded to composer Philip Glass. The award, now issued for the 11th time by the Glenn Gould Foundation, honours living laureates from a variety of creative disciplines for their body of work.

The jury say they chose Glass because he is “a deeply principled guy with a particular approach to spiritualism and a particular love for humanity and for the planet, and a reverence for both that infuses all his work in a way.”
