Portrait of the International Violin Competition Stuttgart (IVS)
The creation of the Guadagnini Foundation in 2019 laid the foundation for the Stuttgart International Violin Competition. The partnerships with the State University of Music and Performing Arts (HMDK) and the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Nabil Shehata set the stage with excellent artistic conditions and beautiful spaces from the outset. The high artistic standards the Guadagnini Foundation has set for the competition are also demonstrated by the top-class panel of judges and are reflected in the prize money.
