Prize at L’Associazione "Amici della Musica – Guido Albanese"

I was happy to learn today that my work for string quartet and soprano on a Sephardic lullaby “Durme, durme, kerido ijico” was awarded third prize at from L’Associazione "Amici della Musica – Guido Albanese.”

The association was created in the 1970s with the aim to promote solo, chamber and symphonic music, with a special attention to the interpreters and composers from Abruzzo, Italy.

Not being from Abruzzo — or any part of Italy — I’m pleased to accept the award, the first and second place winners both being Italian!
