The competition as part of a comprehensive promotion concept.

The competition’s objective is to discover and promote the talents of young musicians at an early age as well as to offer the chance of experience and interchange on an international basis. The pieces chosen for the Competition are of great significance. Young players shall become acquainted with the important works of violin literature. They are asked to study and interpret pieces of various musical epochs and genres. We want this process to be a pleasurable experience without overstraining. The programme of our competition meets this claim and combines it with the violin repertory’s variety while allowing great freedom in the selection of works.
