December 04, 2007|From a Times staff writer

"Neruda Songs," a song cycle that Peter Lieberson composed on a commission from the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony, has won the $200,000 University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition.

The songs are based on five poems by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Lieberson wrote them for his wife, mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, who died of cancer in 2006.
