“Life after Catastrophe” Péter Eötvös receives the 2018 Goethe Medal
Every year the Goethe-Institut confers the official decoration of the Federal Republic of Germany to honour figures who have performed an outstanding service to international cultural dialogue. This yearPéter Eötvös is one of four artists who exemplifies a healing approach to breaches and life-threatening turning points in personal and societal life. With his compositions and interpretations of the works of contemporaries both during and after the Cold War, he advanced a common European musical culture and continues to influence it today.
Klaus-Dieter Lehmann, president of the Goethe-Institut, will present the medals at Weimar’s Residenzschloss on 28 August 2018.
