The Competition across the state
The central aim of the Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover is to offer an attractive stage for exceptionally gifted young violinists from all over the world. During the last 20 years, the idea of using concert venues outside of Hannover has grown into a full-fledged concert series for the entire state. ‘The Competition Across the State’ refers competition participants and awardees of other international competitions to concert agencies across the state. The covered area, extending from Nordhorn to Helmstedt and from Göttingen to Cuxhaven, has thus far seen 40 concerts in eighteen cities.
In 2015, ‘The Competition Across the State’ will take place in two stages. In the summer, the competition season has been opened with eight concerts on the weekend of June 27/28. On October 7, selected competitors will travel across the state, spreading international musical flair throughout Lower Saxony. The concert venues of 2015 are: Leer, Bad Rehburg, Agathenburg, Etelsen, Bad Pyrmont, Lüneburg, Northeim, Haselünne, Göttingen, Cuxhaven, Cloppenburg, Helmstedt, Neuenkirchen and Nordhorn.
