Part wins Danish prize

Posted at 5:17 PM on February 27, 2007 by Don Lee (2 Comments)

From the Associated Press: COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - Estonian composer Arvo Part won the 2008 Sonning Music Prize, Denmark's top music award, the prize committee said Tuesday. Part, 71, will receive the $105,938 award, which is announced a year in advance, during a concert in Copenhagen on May 22, 2008.

"With music rich in spiritual overtones, Arvo Part is one of the most original voices of our time in the international world of music," the awards committee said in its citation.

The prize has been awarded annually since 1959 to an internationally renowned composer, musician, conductor or singer. Previous winners include Igor Stravinsky, Leonard Bernstein, Mstislav Rostropovich, Anne-Sophie Mutter and John Eliot Gardiner.
