High proficiency in Augsburg

Bärenreiter awards winners in violin competition

The Asian violinists had the edge over the other competitors at the prestigious 9th International Violin Competition Leopold Mozart in Augsburg (Germany). Ju Won Song (Korea, on the photo with Achim Fiedler, the conductor of the MozartSolisten Augsburg, © Christina Bleier), Zihu He (China) and Jae Hyeong Lee (Korea) won the first, second and third prizes respectively. Of the 54 finalists from 16 countries, these three talented competitors convinced the jury the most. During a festive finalists’ chamber music concert in the Augsburg town hall, they were presented with a “Bärenreiter Urtext Prize” which consisted of a generous voucher for our editions.
