The next Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition will be held from 4 to 8 September 2018 in Paris at the Radio France Auditorium with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. The Competition is delighted to renew the partnership with Radio France which was established at the third Competition in 2014.
Evgeny Svetlanov was a major figure of the 20th century and heir to the great tradition of Russian conductors. His legacy is reflected in the contemporary musical world.
The Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition was established in 2007 in memory of Evgeny Svetlanov and is held every four years. Its goal is to discover young conductors and to support them in the early stages of their career. The 13 prize-winners of this Competition are now recognised on the international musical scene (Lio Kuokman, Samuel Burstin, Mihhail Gerts, Kalle Kuusava, Andris Poga, Christoph Altstaedt, Daniel Cohen, Robert Trevino, Domingo Hindoyan, Benjamin Ellin, Roberto Fores Veses, Debora Waldman, Rossen Gergov).
2018 will be marked by the celebration of the Maestro’s 90th birthday, thus lending a special dimension to the 4th Competition. The memory of Evgeny Svetlanov will be more present than ever.
Applications will be open from 15 January 2018 to 30 March 2018.
