He has received numerous awards and stipends, amongst others, the ‘Most Promising Young Musician of the Year Award’ of the Argentinean Press. His works are performed by renowned interpreters like the Ensemble SurPlus, the Arditti Quartet, and the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne.
Eduardo Moguillansky received second and third prize in the ‘Jurgenson Composition Competition’ 2003 in Moscow (Tschaikovsky Conservatory). He received the first prize in the ‘National Endowment for the Arts Composition Competition’ in Argentina (Buenos Aires, 2001). In 2002 he was also awarded the first prize in the ‘National Chamber Music Composition Competition’ in Buenos Aires and was invited by the LIPM (Investigation and Musical Production Laboratory, Recoleta Centre, Buenos Aires) to represent Argentina in its exchange program with the ARCEMA Ensemble (José Luis Campana, Université Paris XI).
