Promoting Excellence

Stiftung Niedersachsen, host of the ›Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover‹, provides an ideal environment for the development of excellency.

Those who have been able to succeed in five competition rounds, including various ensemble disciplines and the performance of a violin concerto with orchestra accompaniment, having thus shown their special talent, virtuosity and artistic personality, will be generously rewarded with impressive monetary prizes, debut performance opportunities, and the worldwide distribution of a CD recording.

Over the years, Stiftung Niedersachsen has fostered a network of caring host families that will provide a temporary home in Hannover for participants, allowing them to enter the competition with as much ease as possible. Additionally, the foundation provides practice rooms, excellent accompanists and the unique opportunity of two performances before any jury decision is made. 

With a comprehensive program of music education and a statewide concert series, the foundation will have promising participants visit remote locations, while a live online broadcast of all competition rounds will carry the competition into the world.
