  David Lang wins Pulitzer Prize  CT News at 10:42 on 08 April 2008
 

David Lang has won this year's Pulitzer Prize in music, with his The Little Match Girl Passion, commissioned by Carnegie Hall and available to listen to online here

Runners up were “Meanwhile” by Stephen Hartke and “Concerto for Viola” by Roberto Sierra.

Alex Ross was a finalist for his book on 20th Century Music "The Rest is Noise" and bizarrely, the winner in the Feature Writing category was Gene Weingarten’s piece Pearls Before Breakfast, about Joshua Bell's busking attempts, which was widely condemned in the classical music world as a non-story.

This was an interesting piece, and I quite liked its simplicity (though I'm sure it's a nightmare to sing). Sadly, I wasn't too impressed with the recording as I could barely understand any of the words!
