The Happy Winners in Salzburg

Bärenreiter Prizes at the Mozart Competition

The final of the 15th International Mozart Competition Salzburg in the vocal category took place on 16 February. The Spanish tenor Valentín Sánchez Barbadora came out on top winning first prize. Second place went to soprano Chelsea Marilyn Zurflüh (Switzerland) and third place to baritone Dániel Foki from Hungary. The three other finalists – Anna Tetruashvili (Israel), Martina Russomanno (Italy) and Franziska Zwink (Germany) – each received a "Bärenreiter Urtext Prize" consisting of a generous voucher for Bärenreiter sheet music from Elisabeth Gutjahr, Principal of the Mozarteum University.
