Since 1985, the University of Louisville has awarded one of the largest monetary prizes in music composition, thanks to an endowment from H. Charles Grawemeyer. Previous winners include Witold Lutoslawski, Gyorgy Ligeti, John Adams and Pierre Boulez. The winner of the 2014 award goes to Serbian-born composer Djuro Zivkovic, for his chamber orchestra work “On the Guarding of the Heart,” inspired by an ancient Christian text. It was premiered by Klangforum Wien in 2011.
