We're coming to you from Montréal, Canada for the 2022 Azrieli Music Prizes Gala Concert, featuring the world premiere performances by the 2022 AMP laureates, Iman Habibi, Aharon Harlap, and Rita Ueda.

Established in 2014, the competition is comprised of three categories: The Azrieli Prize for Jewish Music, The Azrieli Commission for Jewish Music, and The Azrieli Commission for Canadian Music.

The Azrieli Commission for Jewish Music went to Iman Habibi, the Azrieli Prize for Jewish Music to Aharon Harlap, and the second edition of the Azrieli Commission for Canadian Music to Rita Ueda.

The prize for each of the three categories includes $50,000 CAD, an AMP Gala performance of the work with conductor Alexandre Bloch and L'Orchestre Métropolitain, and a recording on the Analekta label.
