2015: Chamber-Scale Composition

Announced 10 May 2016
Sponsored by Boosey and Hawkes in memory of Tony Fell

Julian Anderson: Van Gogh Blue

"The winning piece is chamber music writing of exceptional quality, imbued with rhythmic dynamism and instrumental colour, which lead the listener in unexpected directions. Building on the past with a freshness and clarity, the composer demonstrates a new flexibility and takes risks in a work which is spare, radiantly clear and perfectly heard. The Award goes to Julian Anderson’s Van Gogh Blue."
