10 years Fanny Mendelssohn Förderpreis

In 2024, the Fanny Mendelssohn Prize will celebrate its 10th anniversary. 12 prizewinners, 9 published debut albums and more than 50 concerts with partners such as the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the Elbphilharmonie concert hall are among the success stories of the renowned concept prize for classical music. In 2014, Heide Schwarzweller from Hamburg founded the Fanny Mendelssohn Prize as a private initiative with the aim of supporting young musicians in realizing their musical visions. The prize does not focus purely on the technical virtuosity of the musicians, but rather on their conceptual ideas.

The winners from 10 years of the Fanny Mendelssohn Prize are Tamás Pálvalfi (2015, trumpet), Vera Karner & Dominik Wagner (2016, clarinet & double bass), Matthias Well (2017, violin), Christoph Heesch (2018, cello), Michael Buchanan (2019, trombone), Joséphine Olech (2020, flute), Sào Soulez Larivière (2021, viola), Dorothea Schupelius & Jelisaveta Vasiljeva (2022, violin & piano), Philipp Schupelius (2023, cello) and Emanuel Sint (2024, bassoon).
