The Concours de Genève - International Music Competition, founded in 1939 as the Concours International d'Exécution Musicale (CIEM), is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious international music competitions. With the aim to discover, promote, and support young talented artists on the way to an international career, the Concours de Genève also has the distinction of spotlighting different disciplines in every edition. In 2023, string quartets and flutists have the chance to compete for the top prizes!
In this final round, our three remaining flutists must tackle their toughest and most exciting hurdle yet: a concerto performance alongside the world-class Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Geneva’s historic Victoria Hall. Watch them take on a gorgeous Mozart Andante and a concerto by Ibert, Nielsen, or Dalbavie—then stay tuned to see who will take home the top prize!
