„L’Apothéose“ and Handel

Spanish ensemble wins the “Göttingen Händel Competition” and Bärenreiter Special Prize

The winning ensemble of the first “Göttingen Händel Competition” held during the International Handel Festival Göttingen is “L’Apothéose”. The four-strong ensemble from Spain also won the Bärenreiter Urtext Prize, a generous sheet music voucher. Young ensembles from a total of 18 countries took part in the competition. Under the patronage of the Minister of Science and Culture of the State of Lower Saxony, a distinguished seven-member jury, including Bärenreiter Managing Director Barbara Scheuch-Vötterle (on the picture with the musicians of “L'Apothéose”, photo: Alciro Theodora da Silva), judged the selected up-and-coming musicians.
