göttingen händel competition 2020
International competition for young ensembles
Welcome to the göttingen händel competition 2020!
In 2017, the göttingen händel competition has emerged from the renowned and long-standing Göttingen Historical Music Series young ensemble competition. It is aimed at ensembles with a repertoire focus in the field of baroque music and historically informed performance practice.
The göttingen händel competition serves many up-and-coming artists as launchpad from which to step into the professional world of music. The competition is part of the European scholarship programme ‘EEEmerging+’, which offers talented ensembles a platform to prepare for the music market in a variety of ways.
In two competition days on May 19 and 20, 2020, each ensemble will have the opportunity to prove its abilities. The winner will be selected by an expert jury. A highlight for the winning ensemble is the Prizewinners’ Concert on May 21, 2020 at the Welfenschloss, Hann. Münden. As part of the 1st prize of the Göttinger Händel Gesellschaft e. V., the young musicians there present themselves to the Festival audience. Other prizes include the Bärenreiter Urtext Prize and the Publikumspreis (Audience Award).
