Long-Thibaud-Crespin Competition Board Directors Resign

The competition will need new directors for the upcoming 2022 and 2023 rounds


The resigning artistic direction team and board comprised La Scala music director Dominique Meyer, violinist Renaud Capuçon, and pianist Bertrand Chamayou.

The three artists are departing altogether, leaving the competition to instate a new artistic committee to direct the competition — last held in 2019.

Established in 1943, the Long-Thibaud-Crespin Competition is an international classical music competition for pianists, violinists, and singers, with each year featuring a respective group. 

The competition’s 2020 singing round was canceled due to the impracticalities of singing events being hosted during the pandemic. This year's violin round, also made difficult due to COVID-19, was logistically not feasible and had to be canceled as well.

Despite current setbacks, the competition will continue in 2022 for pianists and 2023 for violinists, with more details to be released this October, according to its website.

"I wanted to move on,” said Chamayou on France Musique. "I tried this adventure, and I wish our successors a lot of success."
