Program notes

Three years ago, the Carl Nielsen International Competition combined its violin, flute, and clarinet disciplines into one concurrent competition, and in 2022, the triple tradition continues! Join us in Odense, Denmark, for final-round action from this year's edition of one of the world's most prestigious competitions. In this final round, the competition's top three clarinetists will all perform a movement from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A, as well as Carl Nielsen’s Op. 57 Clarinet Concerto, alongside the Copenhagen Philharmonic and Lena-Lisa Wüstendorfer! This year’s clarinet jury is chaired by Yehuda Gilad, and Martin Fröst will join in deliberations for the final round.

The clarinet prizes at the 2022 Carl Nielsen International Competition have been awarded to…

1st Prize: Oleg Shebeta-Dragan
2nd Prize: Ann Lepage
3rd Prize: Panagiotis Giannakas
