Carl Prisen · Niels Rønsholdt

Congratulations to Niels Rønsholdt who receives Carl Prisen 2021 for his cello concert 'Country'.

Niels Rønsholdt receives the award in the category 'Classical Composer of the Year - Large Ensemble' for his work 'Country' written for cello and chamber orchestra. The work features a cello soloist that both sings and plays the cello 'ala chitarra' - like a guitar. 'Country' was premiered by Jakob Kullberg and Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej.

Jakob Kullberg is nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2021, and 'Country' will be recorded and released at Dacapo Records later in 2021.
