STOCKHOLM – STOCKHOLM (AP) — Italian composer Ennio Morricone and Icelandic singer Bjork have received the 2010 Polar Music Prize from Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf.
The musicians accepted their awards at a glitzy ceremony in Stockholm on Monday. Each award is worth 1 million kronor ($136,000).
The Polar Music Prize is typically shared each year by a pop artist and a classical musician. It was founded by the manager of Sweden's legendary pop group ABBA, Stig Anderson, in 1989.
