Osaka International Chamber Music Competition and Festa
The Osaka International Chamber Music Competition and Festa first took place in 1993, and has been held every three years since then, with the aim of providing a platform for musicians committed to chamber music. The Competition comprises three Sections—String Quartet (two violins, viola and cello); Piano Trio (piano, violin and cello); and Festa (chamber music performed by ensembles consisting of two to nine members. In addition to western classical music, performers can present other musical styles rooted in various ethnic traditions. First Prize winners in Sections I and II get 3,000,000 Yen each, whilst First Prize winners for the Festa (the Yehudi Menuhin Gold Prize) get ¥2,000,000. All those aged between 16 and 35 years old are eligible to enter.
