Yesterday at the 56th Ivor Novello Awards held at Grosvenor House in London, Chester Music composer Michael Nyman received The Ivors Classical Music Award. Nyman has been given this award for the outstanding range and quality of his contribution to classical music repertoire over the past thirty years.
The Ivors are presented annually to celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British music writing. The awards either celebrate artistic excellence in a specific work, exceptional performance figures in the award year or recognise the outstanding achievements of a particular songwriter or composer throughout their career.
The Ivors continue to be acknowledged as the most widely coveted awards for British songwriters and composers in the world. They are judged and presented by the songwriting and composing community.
