Friday April 19, 2013 the brand new prize, the Carl Prize, will be handed out to the lucky winners. Among the nominees are two Edition·S – music¬sound¬art composers.
The Carl Prize is named after the great composer Carl Nielsen – not to confuse with the Carl Nielsen Prize – and founded by Danish Music Publishers' Association. The prize will be given out to a number of Danish songwriters and composers, who all have contributed to the Danish music life, divided into eleven categories. There are two "classical" categories and Edition·S is represented in both: in the category “Classical Composer – large ensemble/opera” Rune Glerup’s Examples of Dust is one of the nominees and in the category “Classical Composer – chamber orchestra/smaller ensemble/solo works” Simon Steen-Andersen is nominated for Black Box Music.
The eleven categories are:
Composer of pop/rock
Composer of jazz/folk/world
Composer of Children’s music
Breakthrough/Talent prize (sponsored by Tuborg Foundation)

Classical Composer – chamber ensemble/smaller ensemble/solo works

The prize ceremony takes place Friday April 19, 2013 at 1 pm at Mogens Dahl’s Concert Hall in Copenhagen where lead singer of Magtens Korridor Johan Olsen and conductor and composer Michael Bojesen will be the hosts.
