Grete Pedersen nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize


– This is a great recognition of what I stand for as a conductor and musician and I am so grateful to all the phenomenal artists and composers that I get to work with.

Thirteen artists who have created unique pieces of music have been nominated for the 2019 Nordic Council Music Prize. The nominees include violinists, singers, conductors, music groups, and a harmonica quartet. The prize was first awarded in 1965 and recognises the creation and performance of music of a high artistic standard.

The nominees were announced by the Finnish conductor and former winner of the prize, Susanna Mälkki at a sold-out launch event at the Helsinki Music Centre. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony for all the Nordic Council prizes in Stockholm this autumn. The artists have been nominated by the members of the national adjudication committees for the music prize.
