Kimmo Pohjonen has been nominated for The Nordic Council Music Prize 2013. This prestigious Prize will go to a small or large ensemble or an individual musician whose musical activity must be characterized as innovative and of a high artistic and technical standard.
The Music prize for creative and practical music was established in 1965 and was originally awarded every third year to a composer from one of the Nordic countries. Since 1990 the prize has been awarded every year alternately to a living composer and to individual artists or groups. The committee states that “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.”
