It all started in summer 2018 at the international Hedwig price competition in
Strzegom / Poland. The main prize of this competition was, among other
things, a trip to Berlin, together with a performance at a music festival in the
next year. This is how Young Classic Dialog Berlin came about. The 13-year-
old violinist Daria Kondratenko from Odessa / Ukraine was the first Hedwig
Prize winner invited to Berlin. It was the first trip abroad for her. Other
musicians came from Spain and Italy. Together with their German friends,
they played on different stages in Berlin for three days. They also got to know
each other and the city of Berlin “off the stage”. It was a time of friendship,
exciting experiences, summer colors and above all: sound.
Here you will find the list of participants. Many young soloists were
accompanied by the experienced pianist Emin Mamedov.
