Jury members for the Joachim competition are: Salvatore Accardo, Boris Kuschnir, Rudolf Koelman, Silvia Marcovici, Lucie Robert, Kaija Saarikettu, Takashi Shimizu, Weidong Tong, and Ingolf Turban. The competition’s artistic director, Krzysztof Wegrzyn, also serves as chair of the jury but does not vote.
Finals will take place in the Großer Sendesaal of the NDR Landesfunkhaus in Hannover on Thursday and Friday. Each of the six Finalists will perform a concerto, such as Beethoven, Tchaikovsky or Sibelius, with NDR Radiophilharmonie, conducted by Hendrik Vestman. The Jury will announce Prize Winners late Friday. Members of the audience who have attended both the Finals may vote on who should be awarded the Audience Prize of €5,000. In addition, a "JJV Community Award" of €2,000 will be awarded to the violinist who receives the highest number of Internet votes (voting begins Wednesday at www.jjv-hannover.de) among those watching via livestream.
The first prize is valued at €50,000 and includes a CD production with Naxos as well as debut recitals and concerts with internationally renowned orchestras and ensembles.
