Blog » Isang Yun International Composition Award

18 Sep  

The Isang Yun International Composition Award has been awarded to composers Heinz Holliger and Kaija Saariaho. They share a prize of $30,000. Congratulations to them both!

 

The competition (under a slightly different name) has existed since 2007, but was originally biennial. It has since suffered administrative problems which led to it not being awarded for a period. It has now reconvened and will be awarded annually from now on, the aim being to ‘encourage artistic work of the highest caliber, uninhabited by conventions but filled with honest visionaries that strike at the heart of human connection.’
