Since 1939, the Geneva International Music Competition has become one of the most trustworthy seals of approval to aspiring classical music talents. Featuring more than 26 categories, the competition has brought to the world some of the most successful musicians 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 very excited to welcome clarinettist Vitor Fernandes and pianist Dmitry Shishkin, two prizewinners of the Geneva Competition 2018, to offer us a glimpse of the sensational musicality that had won over the jury members. The programme includes works by Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Widmann, and Kovács. Expect an evening of refreshing musical imaginations with these exceptional talents!
