Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir Receives Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists

Posted March 02, 2018

Last evening at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, New York Philharmonic Kravis Emerging Composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir (third from right, radiant pink tights) received a Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, which recognizes extraordinary talent around the campus. She also received a Martin E. Segal Award, an endowed award.

On April 4–6 the Orchestra will give the World Premiere of Metacosmos, Thorvaldsdottir’s Philharmonic commission, conducted by The Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Another winner was pianist / composer Conrad Tao (fifth from left, cool embroidered jacket), who is writing a piece commissioned by the Philharmonic to be premiered in September, and who will also curate the Nightcap after the September 28 concert.

Past winners include Philharmonic Concertmaster Frank Huang (2017) and composer Julia Adolphe (2016), whose music the Philharmonic has performed.

Congratulations!
