  • Dmitry Serebrennikov (Russia)

  • Evgenii Artemenkov (Russia)

  • Sara Dragan (Poland)

 

Open to violinists of any nationality born between 1990 and 2002, the competition offers the first prize winner €5,000.

All rounds will stream live here on The Violin Channel.

The 2021 jury comprises Szymon Krzeszowiec (Chairman), Andreas Verziger, Bartłomiej Nizioł, Maria Sławek, Aleksander Trostiansky, and VC Artist Jennifer Pike.
