Beat Furrer awarded Great Austrian State Prize
The composer Beat Furrer has been awarded the Great Austrian State Prize (Großer Österreichischer Staatspreis). In its announcement, the Austrian Arts Senate gave its reasons for recommending the award of the State Prize to Beat Furrer, describing his music “with its distinctive style, characterised by the human voice and the interrelation of sound, language and visual effects, using sophisticated texts. His original musical language, characterised by a wealth of sensitive and subtle differentiation matching his sensitivity, but in no way compromising on the original power of the message and its expression, has aroused interest in the music world from right the outset.”
