Open to international violinists 26 years of age and younger, the first prize winner will receive €5,000.

The 2021 finalists are:

  • Gawon Kim (South Korea)
  • Qingzhu Weng (China)
  • Victoria Wong (Australia)
  • Yumiko Yumiba (Japan)

 

For the semi-final round, each candidate performed a Schubert or Beethoven work for violin and piano, a French Violin and Piano Sonata, and a virtuoso piece of the performer's choice.

"Our aim every second year is to gather musicians, violin and bow makers and music lovers, to discover and promote talented young artists and instrument makers and to celebrate the notable history of French music, particularly that written in our great Lorraine region, from the 19th, 20th and now 21st Centuries," Artistic Director Marianne Piketty said.

The 2021 jury will comprise Martin Beaver, Jan Repko, Dong-Suk Kang, Marianne Piketty, Marco Rizzi, Irina Muresanu, and VC Artist Sergey Malov.
