The International Anton Rubinstein Competition 2020 – CELLO JUNIOR

29. & 29. 三月 2020, Dusseldorf

Competitions are important milestones on the path of young musicians. We set a special emphasis with our junior competitions, which are aimed at children and adolescents aged 8 to 15 who are considering a professional music career. The junior competitions offer them the opportunity to check their skills and level of training, to make new contacts and to gain experience in performing. As an alternative to the prize money, the first prize is a valuable ¾ violoncello on loan for one year.
