+++ Cancellation +++

Our International Violin Competition Henri Marteau has been cancelled today.
This is a joint decision by the District of Upper Franconia as government partner of the competition and by Hofer Symphoniker as organiser. The reason for the cancellation is the Corona-Virus and the health measures taken by the government to help contain the spread of the virus. In the current situation public health must be our number one priority. Please stay healthy!

+++ A few impressions of House Marteau +++

Let’s have a look at House Marteau in Lichtenberg! Not only will it serve as our location for the first two rounds of the competition, it was also Henri Marteau’s summer domicile and later on became his main residence for the last 20 years of his life. Because of his international standing as a violin player, which implied a lot of travelling, he needed a beneficial location to live at – Prague, Berlin, Dresden, Munich, Frankfurt and Leipzig were within easy reach from Lichtenberg.

The 125th birthday of the German-French violinist and composer Henri Marteau in 1999 inspired the "Freundeskreis der Musikbegegnungsstätte Haus Marteau e.V." to found the competition and to hold it in 2002 and 2005. In 2007, the District of Upper Franconia under its president Günther Denzler took over the responsibility. Since then the artistic and general coordination is assigned to the orchestra Hofer Symphoniker. The competition became a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions in April 2012. The goals of the competition are to encourage highly skilled young musicians on their way to an international career and to underline the importance of musical education for young people, to contribute to international understanding, to enable the exchange between young talented musicians and to recollect the name and work of the grand violinist Henri Marteau. The prizes 1st prize: € 10.000 2nd prize: € 7.500 3rd prize: € 5.000 Spezial prizes The awarding of 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize includes the procurement of concert engagements.
