Bärenreiter supports young musicians
For several years Bärenreiter-Verlag has supported youth music competitions in Germany and other European countries. In the 2010 the Kassel-based publisher awarded vouchers to the value of 20,000 Euros in 14 competitions in six countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and Spain). With these “Bärenreiter Urtext Prizes” young musicians are able to choose music editions which reflect the latest state of musical knowledge. At the same time, Bärenreiter hopes to increase the level of awareness of the importance of good editions of printed music. This commitment will continue at the same level in 2011.
