4 1st prizes have just minutes ago been awarded at the 2019 Young Concert Artists International Auditions – in New York City.

The 2019 1st prize winners are:

  • 23-year-old pianist Martin James Bartlett from England
  • Quartet Amabile from Japan
  • 22-year-old pianist Albert Cano Smit from Spain
  • 26-year-old saxophonist Steven Banks from the United States

 

All 4 winners will be invited to join the Young Concert Artists’ roster – granting access to a minimum of 3 years management services, career engagements, publicity and career guidance – plus coveted recital debuts in New York City and at the Washington DC Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The Young Concert Artists International Auditions differ from a competition, as there are no rankings, and any number of winners can be selected – with each candidate competing against a standard of excellence, not each other.

 

 

 

 

 

This year’s final round jury comprised: Daniel Kellogg and Susan Wadsworth (Co-Chair), vocalists Randall Scarlata and Lorraine Nubar, violinist Ida Kavafian, violinist/conductor Peter Oundjian, pianists Jerome Lowenthal, Gary GraffmanIlana Vered, saxophonist Lois Hicks-Wozniak, cellist Fred Sherry,  clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein and conductor Jorge Mester. 

Previous recipients include: Pinchas Zukerman, Ida Kavafian, Chee-Yun, Emanuel Ax, Murray Perahia and Anne Akiko Meyers – and VC Artists Paul Huang, Bella Hristova, Benjamin Beilman, Ray Chen, Stephen Warts, Zlatomir Fung, Edgar Moreau, Xavier Foley, SooBeen Lee and Zlatomir Fung.

Full live-streaming of the Final Round of the Auditions available on The Violin Channel.
