Bent Sørensen’s triple concerto: L’Isola della Città (3rd-5th movements)

Bent Sorensen, a Danish composer known for trembling, glistening works that have drawn comparisons to the paintings of Georges Seurat, has won the 2018 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition for his triple concerto L’Isola della Città.

Presented by the University of Louisville in Kentucky, the Grawemeyer is one of contemporary music’s most prestigious prizes, and comes with a $100,000 award. In Mr. Sorensen, 59, it has gone to a creator of works of hushed drama, full of sliding, drooping, flickering motifs that conjure ghostly, nocturnal worlds of disintegration and melancholy, also evoked by titles like “The Weeping White Room,” “The Deserted Churchyards” and “This Night of No Moon.”
