Winner

Matthew Browne won the 2014 biennial Maurice Gardner Competition with his work for solo viola, Exit, Purused by A Bear, which was performed at the 2014 Primrose Festival in Los Angeles, California, by violist Jarita Ng. The work derives its title from a stage direction in Shakespeare’s play The Winter’s Tale, and the image of a savage bear chasing the composer endlessly through a strange, Bohemian forest inspired the composition. The sheet music is available for purchase directly from the composer at http://www.matthewbrownecomposer.com.
