“The celebration was part of a concert sponsored by the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Festival. There was music by 21 composers, including 10 world premieres. The special program honored the visual artist Bob Peak (1927–1992), whose artwork includes posters for the classic films West Side Story, Superman: The Movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Apocalypse Now, Silverado, My Fair Lady, and Camelot.”

Previous recipients include Yo-Yo Ma, Penderecki, and John Williams.

The ten new works were recorded by Warner Classics for release later this year.
