54th International Violin Competition Premio Paganini

February 28 to March 8 2015

54th International Violin Competition Premio Paganini
will take place in Genova February 28th to March 8th 2015.

Managed under the artistic direction of Maestro Fabio Luisi, the International Violin Competition is named after the great Niccolò Paganini.

After having graduated extraordinary violinists such as Salvatore Accardo, Gidon Kremer and Leonidas Kavakos, the Premio Paganini turns again to young talents from all over the world and it is ready to crown a new winner.

The International Violin Competition "Premio Paganini" officially began in 1954 with a threefold purpose:
it sought to nurture gifted young violinists, usher them into the international spotlight, and establish the city of Genoa in Italy as a prominent cultural centre.

Over the ensuing decades, it indeed became a virtual hotbed of dynamic talent for young and aspiring classical violinists and definitively put Genoa on the cultural map.
