Two First Prize Winners at the ›Joseph Joachim International

The names of all the Prize Winners of the 8th ›Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover‹ have been determined, and were announced at the Award Ceremony during the Prize Winners’ Gala Concert on October 13, 2012. For the first time in the history of the Competition, the First Prize, amounting to €50,000, was awarded to two competitors, Alexandra Conunova-Dumortier from Moldova and Dami Kim from South Korea. Both of these young violinists will receive the full amount of the prize money. The Third Prize, worth €20,000, went to Tobias Feldmann of Germany. The other three Finalists are well rewarded too: In Mo Yang (Fourth Prize) and Bomsori Kim and Airi Suzuki (joint Fifth Prizes) each receive €8,000 in prize money.
The Jury of Music Critics also awarded the Music Critics’ Prize at the NDR Landesfunkhaus (State Broadcasting House) on Saturday evening; this prize of €5,000 was awarded to Tobias Feldmann. And members of the audience were allowed to have their say as well: Anyone who attended both the Finals was able to vote on who should be awarded the Audience Prize. This prize too is worth €5,000, and also went to Tobias Feldmann.
Furthermore, the six Semifinalists who did not reach the Finals will also receive support from the Competition in the form of scholarships worth €1,000 each to help finance their further studies. This is an important component of the comprehensive funding provided to the ›Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover‹ by the Stiftung Niedersachsen.
