What makes the award of the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition really important is that the winner will lead at least one concert with all the orchestras collaborating in the competition throughout the seasons 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20.
The orchestras who make a commitment to the competition and entrust the jury with the responsibility of choosing the winner are the real stars. Their trust is what makes the award unique in the world of orchestral conducting competitions, and what makes it, rather than a mere recognition of talent, into a solid platform supporting the professional career of the winner.
We would like to thank all the participating orchestras. Without their trust the prize would not have this special dimension.
