In the jury’s assessment, Peteris Vasks’ Sixth String Quartet was recognized as the new work of the year, which was premiered on October 3 at the Dzintari Concert Hall by the string quartet “Artemis”.
The award ceremony was presented by music teacher, composer Aivars Broks, who noted in his speech that without music teachers there would be no new works or the Grand Music Awards, and therefore called for the introduction of a new award category next year – “Music Teacher of the Year”.
