I am very happy to announce that I am among the nominees for the Nordic Council Music Prizethis year. This year’s theme text is: “The Nordic Council Music Prize 2013 will go to a small or large ensemble or an individual musician whose musical activity must be characterised as innovative and of a high artistic and technical standard. In making the assessment it is important to have continuity in the work as well as the work being regarded as innovative within its musical genre.”
So it is as performer I am nominated! Well, it is of course all connected, composing, performing, living…
Anyway, I am very happy for this, and also for the nomination of my good friend Pekka Kuusisto who I hope wins!
