    (openPR) – The prize winners at the 56th ARD International Music Competition have all been determined. This year, the jury awarded four first, four second and three third prizes. The main and special prizes have been endowed with a total sum of 170,000 Euros. For the first time in the history of the Competition, there was a first prize in the category trombone. After forty years a first prize was again awarded in the oboe category. All in all, 217 young instrumentalists from 35 countries took part in this year’s competition.
    Summing things up, Axel Linstädt, the Artistic Director of the Music Competition, said: “I was very impressed by the consistently high level of the participants and I’m especially happy that the excellent accomplishments of the prize winners convinced the jurors to award first prizes. The trombonists and oboists particularly had to wait a long time for this. Once again, the very considerable audience interest – even in the case of unusual instrumental categories – surprised and delighted me.”
