NDR Kultur Award

Young artists of today shape tomorrow’s culture – hence encouraging and promoting the new generation of musicians is of utmost importance!

The broadcasting station NDR Kultur will award a prize to an especially talented young musician in the course of the International Music Competition for Young People. The prize includes an invitation to the broadcasting studio of NDR Kultur where the winner will have the opportunity of recording under professional conditions. This recording will be broadcasted in a radio feature of the series „Junge Künstler“.

The broadcasting station of NDR has a long tradition in promoting those of the new generation. For more than 50 years young musicians, men and women, have been invited to concerts and recordings. Thus young musicians who are now stars in classical music made some of their first appearances on NDR, among them the pianist Martha Argerich, the oboe player Heinz Holliger or the pianist and orchestra conductor Christoph von Dohnányi.
