Spain’s orchestra is back on the prize list for the first time in decades after winning the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo.
The harlequins won their first prize for the best symphony at the ceremony.
“The world has lost a legend,” said Nobel Peace Laureate Irina Glazova.
The world has no shortage of Nobel laureates who were instrumental in the peace process and the international efforts to bring peace and democracy to the world, said Glazov.
The award is part of a tradition that dates back to 1953, when Nobel Peace laureates awarded their peace prize to individuals who had worked to bring about the end of hostilities in South Africa and Afghanistan.
The prize is awarded to individuals for their contribution to the promotion of peace and development of peoples’ lives, Glazovsky said.
The Nobel Peace prize was awarded in Oslo, Norway, on Monday, the day after President Trump signed an executive order declaring that he had decided to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
The peace prize is a distinction bestowed on individuals for actions and policies that have made the world a more peaceful and secure place, Glazyova said.
The harlequeen won the prize for music, in addition to the orchestra, in 2017.
The orchestra was one of several groups to win the prize last year, and the other two were the Polish National Symphony Orchestra and the Czech National Orchestra.
“We are very happy, especially with this nomination.
We have been working for a long time on the laureates list,” said John-Francois Ternet, the president of the National Symphony.
“It is a recognition that we have been doing a lot of work and that this is something that we are working on, and we are going to work on it for years and years.”
The first prize went to an American conductor named John Cage, who won in 1951 for his work with the symphony in New York City.
He is now the chief conductor of the American orchestra.
Two other Nobel laureate recipients were women: Swedish composer Marianne Möllering won in 2005 for her work with music in the form of the symphonic piano; and the Finnish composer Martti Törmänen won in 2013 for her writing and recording of symphonies.
Awarding the prize is not a new phenomenon.
In fact, it was first awarded in 1953.
More than 40 Nobel laureated people were awarded the prize between 1948 and 1973, including many women.
The last Nobel Peace laureate, Swedish poet Olof Sandberg, was the first to be given the prize in 1994.
