A great job done by Kjell in the award with his detailed comments, comparisons and analyses.
As Julia said: “More than that, with his huge experience and academic knowledge, Kjell made these three awards a valuable reading, adding so much to the contribution of the composers themselves. What he created, in coalition with composers from all around the world, is really a booklet on FAIRY UNPIN.

Thank you, Kjell! Thank you, Julia! For a great event in these troubled times.
