The prize included a brand-new Steinway B grand piano as well as access to a rehearsal studio in central Stockholm. In 2019, Lyssarides was named Musician of the Year by the Swedish radio. As one of Sweden’s best-selling jazz artists, his music has been streamed over 60 million times on digital streaming platforms.
