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—one which has helped launched the careers of violinists like Pekka Kuusisto, Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider, and Liya Petrova, among others. In this final round, the competition's top violinists will all perform Carl Nielsen’s Violin Concerto! This year’s violin jury is chaired by Noah Bendix-Balgley, and the chosen candidates get the chance to perform here alongside the Odense Symphony Orchestra under the acclaimed Italian conductor Daniela Musca.

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

1st Prize (tie): Hans Christian Aavik and Bohdan Luts
2nd Prize: not awarded
3rd Prize: Eun Che Kim
