    Making music can be a rather lonely business when you sit for hours upon hours in your little room, toiling away at finger exercises, scales, and etudes. “Practice makes perfect” goes the sober saying. But there are two kinds of reward. One is meeting like-minded people in a duo, ensemble, or orchestra – the incomparable experience of shared musical fulfillment. The other is via encounter at a competition. For after the long period of seclusion with the instrument it is inevitable, no, it is even desirable, to sound out one’s own potential and limits in competition with peers. The Swiss Youth Music Competition offers the ideal platform for this. There is hardly a musician or virtuoso from this country who has not gained important experience here. In this concert, the best contestants from the 2021 edition will introduce themselves and offer a glimpse into the future.
