göttingen händel competition

Newly designed competition for young ensembles

Even success stories sometimes need to enter a new chapter: emerging from the Göttingen Historical Music Series comes now the international göttingen händel competition. In place of the four concerts spread across autumn and winter, there are now two competition days at the start of the Festival period. On the first day, eight ensembles performed before the expert jury and the interested Göttingen audience. The best three played the next day in a bid for the prizes – now also involving in certain cases prize money – and the Prizewinners’ Concert.

For more information please see the website of the competition.

The göttingen händel competition is supported by Göttinger Händel-Gesellschaft e. V. and Sartorius AG.


The competition forms part of the international eeemerging, Emerging European Ensembles Project and is therefore supported by the Creative Europe Programme ot the European Union.
