The Foundation

The Dag Wirén Foundation has provided support to recordings of the music of Wirén and to the publication of books about him, and has also awarded scholarships to people who in various ways contribute to and further awareness of his music. In 2007, the foundation created the Dag Wirén Prize which is awarded to both individual people and institutions who have made a special effort to promote or spread Dag Wirén’s music. 

Interested parties are welcome to send in applications to the Foundation for support for projects that help further the performance and knowledge of Wirén’s music both in Sweden and abroad. The Foundation does not primarily support tours or individual concerts, but instead gives priority to other activities such as seminars, lectures, translations, promotional projects, or the publication of articles about Wirén’s music in other languages. 

The board consists of the following members: Roland Sandberg (Chair), Annika Wirén, Hans Enflo and Stefan Bojsten, and deputy members: Ann Marie Belfrage and Stefan Karpe. The foundation is administered by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, Blasieholmstorg 8, SE-111 48 Stockholm, Sweden.
