Joseph Joachim Violinwettbewerb 2021: Finalkonzert von Maria Ioudenitch im Großen NDR Sendesaal

September 16–28, 2024 in Hanover

Die Künstlerische Leitung des Violinwettbewerbs: Antje Weithaas (rechts) und Oliver Wille (links). Beide halten eine Geige in der Hand. Oliver Wille lacht in die Kamera, Antje Weithaas schaut ihn lachend an.
We are looking for curious minds who have perfect command of their instrument and at the same time are humble servants of great composers and their scores - young artists who boldly strive for individuality and make bold musical statements with the violin: Musicians whose voices evoke deep emotions and display an extraordinary degree of versatility.
Antje Weithaas and Oliver Wille (Artistic directors of the competition)

Jury Preselection
For the preselection, five jurors have been recruited who share a long-standing connection to Hanover and the partner orchestra, the NDR Radiophilharmonie. Due to their many years of experience with first-class international conductors and soloists, their individual artistic activities as chamber musicians and soloists and their independence from the university and competition business, they are particularly predestined for the task.
