2019 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition presentation by Joel Bons

Dutch composer Joël Bons will discuss his award-winning cello solo, Nomaden. The piece, which won the 2019 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition, brings together an ensemble of instruments and sounds from diverse cultures including a wide array of Asian instruments, many of which are precursors of Western instruments.

Cello Biennale Amsterdam commissioned the work, which premiered in Amsterdam in 2016.
