Three big prizewinners in Lucerne. Oh, they’re Swiss.

Always good to see new names on the winners’ board. (Always good to read the small print.)

The Lucerne Festival has named three winners of the first Fritz-Gerber-Award, each collecting 10,000 Swiss francs.

They are the clarinettist Mariella Bachmann, 27, the flautist Rafal Zolkos, 28, and the violinist David Sypniewski, 25.

The qualification is that winners must have lived and worked in Switzerland for at least five years.

  • “The qualification is that winners must have lived and worked in Switzerland for at least five years”… and be the best competitors, I hope.

  • This looks like a national as opposed to an international competition. And it does not even seem to focus entirely on the respective passport. So what? Clickbait again?
