International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition

By 1. January 2020January 5th, 2020Wettbewerbe Streicher

For over eighty years Henryk Wieniawski has lent his name to international violin competitions. Expected to turn up are young virtuosos of a new generation, ones already brought up in the globalized world: oftentimes born in one country, educated in another, living in still another, and daily exposed to the influence of varied cultures. What unites them, however, is music, and, as always, the urge to challenge their peers’ talents, technical skills and artistic imagination. For the venue of this confrontation they chose Poznań – the town that can boast the oldest violin competition in the world.
