No Brits in Salzburg baton race

The UK had contenders in the final three spots of the Nestlé-Salzburg Conductors Award in each of the past three years, with Ben Gernon winning outright in 2013 and Jamie Phillips coming second the year before. But 2015 is a Brit-free year in Salzburg.

The finalists, chosen by Dennis Russell Davies (pictured) and Plácido Domingo, are:

Jiri Rozen (23), Czech Republic

Giedrė Šlekytė (25), Lithuania

Lorenzo Viotti (25), Switzerland
