The Siemens Cultural Foundation awards prize to Jan Müller-Wieland

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation has awarded this year's furtherance prize to Jan Müller-Wieland. In the prize document it says:

"With the furtherance prize for composers, the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation supports according to its statutes a young, highly gifted composer whose hitherto existing works reveal, alongside outstanding craftsmanship, above all the courage to realise innovative ideas. The granted free space is an honour and at the same time an incentive to energetically pursue creativity with the material unhindered by external circumstances for a set period of time, and to express and bring to fruition intuitively attained insights through experience with the present-day period and society."
