Lise has been named as one of the nominees for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2017. The prize is awarded in alternate years and recognises outstanding Scandanavian musicians, ensembles and living composers. The winner will be announced and the prize awarded in Finlandia Hall, Helsinki, on 1 November.
The first Music Prize was awarded in 1965 and it has been an annual event since 1990. The Nordic Council of Ministers appoints an adjudication committee to select the winner of the Prize, consisting of one member from each of the five Nordic countries. Last year’s winner was Hans Abrahamsen from Denmark for the song cycle “Let Me Tell You”.
