© International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition Hannover
The Stiftung Niedersachsen (Foundation of Lower Saxony) established this triennial competition in 1991 with a view to limelighting Hannover as the traditional and current-day home to a number of high-calibre musical institutions and events. The up-and-coming international generation of young violinists is invited to Lower Saxony every three years for this competition under the artistic direction of initiator Krzysztof Wegrzyn.
