The Competition’s purpose is to discover young talent capable of representing the Competition’s values: musicality, sensitivity, humility, constant re-evaluation, ceaseless striving for excellence, attention to chamber music partners, and respect for the composer’s musical text. These values are inspired by the life and career of Clara Haskil, a Swiss pianist born in Bucharest, Romania in 1895 and who died in Brussels in 1960.The programme reflects Clara Haskil’s vast repertoire through a recital, a chamber music performance, and a concerto with orchestra. The first editions were held in Lucerne; since 1973 they have been held in Vevey, where Clara Haskil lived from 1942 until her death. A street in Vevey bears her name. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lh4iBsFXV8
