The laureates of the 5th edition of the award were Lia and Dan Perjovschi, a visual artist couple from Romania, and Yoel Gamzou, a young Israeli-American conductor and assistant music director at the Staatstheater Kassel in Berlin.
Speaking about the laureates, Princess Laurentien said: “Dan and Lia Perjovschi and Yoel Gamzou guide us, through their art, to new and unexpected juxtapositions of ideas and cultures.”
