We thank everyone and congratulate them for their participation and for the work they do every day to achieve performance in music.

The youngest Participants at the International Piano and Violin Contest

Instead of other words and statistics, we present to you what Anne Sophie Dogaru (5 years old) wrote to us: ”Thank you for the opportunity to participate at this contest. I play piano with all my heart and I hope to share the happiness that I feel when I read a new score or when my interpretation gets better. I am grateful to my beloved piano teacher, as well.”

Anne Sophie Dogaru – the youngest pianist in the contest

We also would like to introduce to you the youngest violin competitor – Beatrice Ambra (5 years old). She started studying violin for less than a year, with her parents Prof. Antonio Ambra and Alexandra Butnaru. She has already performed in concerts as soloist or as member of young chamber music ensembles. She loves classical music and her favorite violinist is Itzhak Perlman.
