Concours de Genève – Geneva International Music Competition

Founded in 1939, the Geneva Competition is one of the world’s leading international music competitions. It aims at discovering, promoting and supporting young talented artists, giving them the necessary tools to launch an international career.

In more than 75 years of existence, Geneva has revealed close to 800 artists, including well-known figures such as Martha Argerich, Arturo Benedetti-Michelangeli, Maurice André, Georg Solti, Tabea Zimmermann, Nelson Goerner and Emmanuel Pahud…

Geneva's multi-disciplinary approach is one of its most distinctive assets. Today, the Geneva Competition alternates between several main disciplines: piano, flute, oboe, clarinet, cello, viola, string quartet, voice and percussion. Every second year, it offers a Composition Prize.

In addition to its official prizes, Geneva offers a career development programme, providing precious support and advice to help boost laureates’ careers. The programme includes two years of concert management, as well as CD recordings, international tours, a festival and professional workshops.
