Meet the candidates of the 2024 Violin Competition

We are proud to announce the names of the talented young violinists selected for the first round of the 2024 Violin Competition, taking place from Monday 6 to Saturday 11 May at Flagey.

The candidates
70 candidates were selected to participate in the first public round of this session. Since one of the selected violinists had to withdraw, there are currently 69 participants.

Discover their profiles on the candidates' webpage !

Video preselection
For this twentieth violin edition, no less than 290 violinists between 18 and 31 years old applied. Each of them had recorded four works for the video preselection round ; a Bach sonata for solo violin, a Caprice by Paganini, the first movement of a sonata by Mozart, Beethoven or Schubert, and a work of choice.

Preselection jury
The preselection took place behind closed doors at the end of January. An international jury consisting of Augustin Dumay, Lorenzo Gatto, Philippe Graffin, Victor Kissine, Tatiana Samouil and Vineta Sareika reunited under the presidency of Gilles Ledure. The names of the jury members of the public competition rounds will be announced later on.

The order in which the candidates will appear in the first public round will be announced after the drawing of lots, on Friday night 3 May. Don't miss out on the opportunity to hear some of the world's most prodigious young violinists at work at Flagey, during the first round and semi-final, or at the Brussels Centre for Fine Arts for the final - and book your tickets now !
