Since 1939, the Geneva Competition has been a platform for establishing the reputation of aspiring classical music artists. The competition has brought attention to some of the most successful musicians of our times, including Martha Argerich, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, Friedrich Gulda, Heinz Holliger, Emmanuel Pahud, Maurizio Pollini, Georg Solti, José van Dam, Christian Zacharias, and many more.
This season, we are delighted to welcome clarinettist Vitor Fernandes and pianist Dmitry Shishkin, two prizewinners of the Geneva Competition 2018. The programme includes works by Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Widmann, and Widor.
