Schott Music is thrilled to announce that Lei Liang has been awarded the prestigious University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Music Composition for his orchestral work A Thousand Mountains, A Million Streams.
In two movements, A Thousand Mountains, A Million Streams meditates on the loss of landscapes of cultural and spiritual dimensions and implies an intention to preserve and resurrect parallel landscapes, both spiritual and physical. Norman Ryan, Schott Music New York, comments:
Lei Liang’s richly expressive compositional voice reflects the depth and diversity of human experience. Th e exquisite fusion of narrative, symbolic, and lyrical forms in his music heightens our consciousness of the world around us and invites us to embrace a universal humanity. All of us at Schott are deeply proud of Lei Liang and heartily congratulate him on this welldeserved honor.
