The British rock group Led Zeppelin and Russian conductor Valery Gergiev  have been awarded this year’s Polar Music Prize.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Music says the prize has gone to Led Zeppelin for its “playful and experimental music combined with highly eclectic elements”. It’s the first time the Polar Prize, sometimes called the unofficial “Nobel Prize for Music” has gone to a group rather than an individual.’

The jury says the 52 year old Gergiev has been honored “for the way his unique, electrifying music skills have deepened and renewed out relationship with the grand tradition; and for how he has managed to develop and amplify the importance of artistic music in these modern, changing times.”
