Bjork Accepting Polar Music Prize in Lavish Ceremony
Icelandic singer Bjork and Italian composer Ennio Morricone accepted the 2010 Polar Music Prize in Sweden on Monday, August 30. King Carl XVI Gustaf honored the pair at a lavish ceremony.
Both musicians were handed $136,000 and presented with trophies at a ceremony in Stockholm. The Polar Music Prize, which was founded by ABBA's former manager Stig Anderson in 1989, is shared annually by a pop artist and a classical musician. It is Sweden's most high-profile music award and is split between pop and classical musicians.
Last year's award was shared by former Genesis singer Peter Gabriel and Venezuelan composer Jose Antonio Abreu. Previous recipients include Pink Floyd, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin.
