For the first time this year, the ICMA has awarded a prize to a composer: the Composer award. For the first edition of this new category, the prize was awarded to the Spanish composer Francisco Coll (born in 1985, in Faber Music since 2011). Francisco Coll is the only student of Thomas Adès to date.
