The Prémio Jovens Músicos (Young Musicians Award) has been in existence for more than 30 years and remains firm in its aim to identify and promote new musical talent in Portugal. Over the years, talented young people have been awarded prizes in the various disciplines for the competition, later becoming outstanding soloists and/or orchestral players in Portugal and abroad.
In line with the long standing collaboration in this respect between the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and RTP – Antena 2, the event organisers, Gulbenkian Music is once again hosting the Young Musicians’ Festival, an event that presents the award-winning artists. The Festival programme, which runs for three days, includes two performances by the Gulbenkian Orchestra, in one of which the “Young Musician of the Year” will be chosen. They will be complemented by other concerts and panels, which will feature various groups and artists, including award-winning musicians from previous editions.
