Evaluation

The evaluation is carried out by a jury of renowned soloists and teachers from Germany and abroad.
The jury works according to jury rules. Decisions once made are irrevocable. Legal recourse is excluded.
During the competition, candidates may neither be advised nor taught by jurors.
The following will be judged:

  • musical shaping (knowledge of style and authentic performance practice)
  • sound quality and expressiveness
  • technical skill
  • artistic personality

Judging will be based on criteria expected of young soloists of appropriate artistic maturity.

Following the jury deliberations, the names of those participants who have reached the next round will be announced to the candidates by the chairman of the overall jury. The announcement will be made in the order of the performances. Scores or placings will not be announced.
If a contestant who has been eliminated wishes to be consulted about his/her performance, the chairman of the panel of judges and jurors should be available. No information about scores will be given in these discussions. Candidates should be informed of this possible advice.
The jury may suspend the awarding of prizes. The jury alone decides on the awarding of prizes. Prizes may, but need not, be awarded.
