Nuno Costa wins 2015 ISCM Young Composers Award, supported by Music on Main

The winner of the 2015 ISCM Young Composer Award (supported by Music on Main) has been announced. The winner, who will receive a commission for a new work to be performed at a future International Society for Contemporary Music festival, was Nuno Costa (Portugal) for his work “Pater noster.” The jury, composed of Alejandro Guarello (Chile), Gudny Gudmundsdottir (Iceland), and Glenda Keam (New Zealand), with Stephen Lias (USA) as the jury coordinator, praised the work’s “internal logic and individual musical language.”

Music on Main has supported the ISCM Young Composer Award since 2013 when it was won by Yasunoshin Morita (Japan).
