Endless excitement with the Nordic’s foremost young musicians and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Who will be this year’s winner?!
Get ready for a nerve-wracking afternoon in Gothenburg Concert Hall when the four finalists, the Nordic region’s foremost young soloists aged 14-18, perform with the Gothenburg Symphony and compete for the Polstjärnepriset (the polar start prize). After three rounds of competition, we will get an answer to the question – who will be this year’s winner?
In 2023, the Polstjärnepriset will be held for the first time as a Nordic Edition for young musicians from all over the Nordics and will become a prestigious international competition – will the winner come from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden?
Polstjärnepriset is more than a competition. During the autumn holidays, over 70 competition and course participants gather in Vänersborg to play together in ensembles and orchestras and refine the solo repertoire together with musicians from, among others, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra as well as professors and pedagogues from music colleges and talent centers in Sweden and the rest of Europe. The next time everyone will meet again in Vänersborg is the 1st week of January. Then the focus is on the competition moments but also on preparations for the Polstjärnepriset’s festival concerts in Vänersborg, Gothenburg and Oslo.
In Gothenburg, the young musicians play Brahms’s Fourth Symphony side by side with the Gothenburg Symphony as a festive prelude to the award ceremony when the winner will finally be crowned.
