The MacArthur Foundation announced its 2013 Fellows this morning. Among the 24 are two musicians, jazz pianist and composer Vijay Iyer (who was profiled on NewMusicBox in 2010) and classical pianist/writer Jeremy Denk (who wrote in NewMusicBox about composer-performer resentment in 2008). To learn more about this year’s honorees, who have been recognized for their exceptional achievements in the arts and sciences, go to macfound.org.
