The prize is awarded annually to one outstanding student who studies at the country’s music colleges. According to the award citation posted on the prize’s website, “The violist Ilias Livieratos possesses a warm and rich sound. He displays a multifaceted playing that is deeply personal and always interesting. He is a wonderful instrumentalist and a worthy recipient of this year’s Wallander Prize.”
