Theo Verbey’s Ariadne awarded honorable mention

06 Jul 2021

Theo Verbey has been awarded a posthumous honorable mention for his final piece, Ariadne. The jury wrote about Verbey’s work: “Ariadne symbolizes finding a way out of the maze, liberation and redemption. Although it is not a literal rendition of the Greek myth, the title lends this outstanding work written for the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra by Theo Verbey (who died in 2019) the aura of a swan song.”
