Peter Gabriel and José Antonio Abreu awarded the Polar Prize 2009 
Peter Gabriel slog igenom som sångare i det brittiska bandet Genesis som var delaktiga i att förnya rockmusiken under 70-talet. Efter att Gabriel lämnat bandet 1975 gick han vidare med en framgångsrik solokarriär. Albumen "So" och "Us" blev stora framgångar. Han skrev dessutom animerad musikvideohistoria med hitten "Sledgehammer" och "Big Time" 1986.

På senare tid har Peter Gabriel, som hunnit fylla 59 år, varit delaktig i att sprida så kallad världsmusik till väst, inte minst genom sitt skivbolag Real World. Han har även varit drivande i den heta samtidsfrågan om digital musikdistribution och vid sidan om musiken har han engagerat sig i mänskliga rättigheter och välgörenhetsprojekt.

José Antonio Abreu från Venezuela, utbildad pianist och kompositör, får priset för sitt revolutionerande hjälpprojekt El Sistema som lär fattiga barn att spela klassisk musik. Det grundades 1975 och redan 1979 fick han National Music Prize i Venezuela för projektet. 1995 utsågs Abreu till Special Ambassador for the "Development of a Global Network of Youth and Children Orchestras and Choirs" av Unesco. Sedan flera år tillbaka har El Sistema lagt grunden för världsstjärnor på den klassiska scenen. Inom ramarna för projektet sker ett kontinuerligt utbyte med andra latinamerikanska länder, Spanien och USA.

Priserna och utmärkelserna har fullkomligt haglat över Abreu genom åren. Under 2008 fick han inte mindre än 8 olika priser, och tidigare i år tilldelades han Crystal Award of the World Economic Forum och TED-priset.
