Belmont Prize for Contemporary Music
What a joy and a true honour it is to be the laureate of The Forberg-Schneider Foundation’s 2015 Belmont Prize for Contemporary Music!!!
This very special day, filled with emotions, music, thrills and exaltation was a real blast thanking to the amazing musicians who gave such an outstanding, expressive and inspired interpretation of my music, to Mr. Anselm Cybinski, music critic and journalist who asked the right questions and presented me in a wonderful, spontaneous yet very insightful way and, FINALLY, to the Chairman of the Foundation Board Ms Gabriele Forberg-Schneider, who has been supporting and encouraging me since years now and without whom none of this would be possible! It is my greatest pleasure to share Her extraordinary Laudatio, which deeply touched me...
70. Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Sunday 26. July 2015, 11.00h VERDO Concert Hall
Last, but not least, I owe an immense gratitude to my family for supporting me, for believing in me and in my dreams (no matter how impossible they seemed) and for being with me on this adventurous journey no matter how difficult it was.
THANK YOU ALL!
