We present to you a 5-CD sound chronicle of 14th International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition which was held on 8-23 October, 2011 in Poznań.
A selection of the recordings was not easy. For how to capture the unforgettable atmosphere of the fourteen days of auditions on several CDs? Which interpretations should be included to make this chronicle a representative cross-section of the many diverse performances, while allowing listeners to make their own judgment on the skills of the young violinists? These were the challenges faced by the producers of this sound chronicle.
The first CD is devoted exclusively to the competition winner, Soyoung Yoon of South Korea.The second CD features recordings by Second and Third Prize winners, Miki Kobayashi (Japan) and Stefan Tarara (Germany). The third CD contains the recordings by the finalists - Erzhan Kulibaev (Kazakhstan), Aylen Pritchin (Russia) and Arata Yumi (Japan). The fourth CD is dedicated to representatives of the Polish violin school, and the fifth features a selection of pieces performed by those who failed to qualify to the finals but are interesting artistic personalities.
