The Vendome Prize for Piano: Gala Concert Verbier Festival 2019


Accompanied by the Calidore String Quartet, the three finalists of the Vendome Prize for Piano offer us a magnificent concert at the Verbier Church. A veritable career springboard for young pianists, the competition makes discovering new classical music talents its main business, and brings these rising stars in contact with renowned virtuosos and artistic mentors. Previous winners include George Li, Denis Kozhukhin and Yevgeny Sudbin. Watch along with the prestigious jury and join these young musicians for their first steps onto the international stage!
