I've just read on Sequenza21 that György Kurtág has won this year's 200,000 dollar Grawemeyer award for composition for Concertante Op.42 for violin, viola and orchestra. A very deserved winner - David Salvage on Sequenza21 calls him "the best alive", and I don't think he's far off the mark. The already illustrious list of previous winners has been further enhanced.
