For ten days in March 2019, the Carl Nielsen International Competition – for violin, clarinet, and flute – will be held concurrently for the first time in the composer’s hometown of Odense, Denmark, welcoming 68 young participants to compete.
Representing the 2019 competition as Artistic Advisors are three of the world’s leading musicians in their fields – Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider, Emmanuel Pahud, and Martin Fröst – who have actively participated in the selection process.
