Named after the prominent Danish composer, conductor and violinist, the competition is regarded as one of the most authoritative and prestigious music contests in the world. Under the patronage of Margarathe II, Queen of Denmark, the event was founded in the late 1970’s by Odense Symphony Orchestra’s then Chief Conductor, Karol Stryja and leader Peder Elbæk as well as by the City’s Mayor Mr Verner Dalskov. Young chamber musicians from around the world will perform string quartets and the wind quartet composed by the master. A number of cash prizes, including the best performances, will be awarded by the panel of experienced judges.
