The Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award was won today by Kerem Hasan from Great Britain.
‘He has the necessary self-confidence, he knows what he wants and he has the talent required – in other words, the best prerequisites for an international career,’ said Jury Chairman Dennis Russell Davies.
Keren wins € 15,000 and a Salzburg Festival concert at the Felsenreitschule in August 2018.
Past winners are Aziz Shokhakimov (2016), Lorenzo Viotti (2015), Maxime Pascal (2014), Ben Gernon (2013), Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla (2012), Ainārs Rubikis (2011) and David Afkham (2010).
This is a big one.
