An impressive track record

The Menuhin Competition has an impressive track record of counting some of the world’s most gifted violinists among its participants and prizewinners. Since 1983, many prizewinners such as Nikolaj Znaider, Tasmin Little, Julia Fischer, Ilya Gringolts and more recently Ray Chen, Chad Hoopes and Stephen Waarts have gone onto successful international careers as soloists. Some are outstanding concertmasters such as Daishin Kashimoto at the Berlin Philharmonic, others such as Corina Belcea lead world-class chamber ensembles.
