For over 60 years, the World Federation of International Music Competitions has represented the world’s premier music competitions.

It offers its members a set of valuable services and a platform for exchange, advice and support. The WFIMC plays a major role within the world of arts and culture, giving voice to music competitions and to all the young artists whose careers, through competitions, take a decisive turn. The WFIMC supports young talents, musical creation, a diversity of genres and cultures. It encourages the evolution of the musical world, its revitalisation and its integration in an increasingly dynamic environment. We invite you to discover in this annual brochure the richness and diversity of the WFIMC, a reflection of the world of music.

MESSAGE DU SECRÉTAIRE GÉNÉRAL

FR

Founded by 13 European competitions eager to share ideas and practices, the WFIMC counts a wide variety of Members with different artistic vision and heritage spread across 40 countries. The Member Competitions of the WFIMC discover, reward and nurture young artists. These cultural events are a platform for international exchange, dialogue, personal and professional development as well as cultural tourism and community outreach. Today’s competitions seek to reward complete artists. Audiences are eager to support the person behind the music and today’s competitions encourage competitors to present their full voice with initiatives such as own-choice programming, interviews, community activities and chamber music performance. WFIMC Member Competitions celebrate much more than a perfect performance and prize money. Through competitions, musicians build stamina, prepare vast quantities of repertoire and learn to handle public interest. Pressure and nervous energy are ever-present, but international competitions are a preparation for the future. Today’s competitions provide young competitors with the opportunity to hear one another and to find their place amongst their peers. Entering the right competition at the right time with sufficient preparation and a strong artistic statement can open doors which would otherwise remain closed. I encourage you to learn more about the WFIMC and its Member competitions by visiting our website at www.wfimc-fmcim.org and by making time to attend a Member Competition in person.

Fondée par 13 concours européens désireux de partager des idées et des pratiques, la FMCIM est composée d’une grande variété de membres avec une vision artistique et un patrimoine différents répartis dans 40 pays. Les concours membres de la FMCIM découvrent, récompensent et encouragent les jeunes artistes. Ces événements culturels sont une plateforme pour l’échange international, le dialogue, le développement personnel et professionnel ainsi que la découverte culturelle et la sensibilisation communautaire. Actuellement, les concours cherchent à récompenser des artistes complets. Le public soutient avec enthousiasme les auteurs et les compositeurs. En outre, ces concours encouragent les candidats à présenter des initiatives telles que la programmation de leur choix de répertoire, à participer à des entrevues, des activités communautaires et des performances de musique de chambre. Les concours membres de la FMCIM célèbrent bien plus qu’une performance aboutie et un prix. Ces concours permettent aux musiciens de mettre à l’épreuve leur endurance, de préparer une vaste gamme de répertoires et apprendre à susciter l’intérêt du public. La pression est omniprésente, mais les concours internationaux sont une préparation pour l’avenir. Les concours offrent aux jeunes candidats l’occasion d’écouter chacune de leurs performances et d’évoluer au sein d’un environnement compétitif. Intégrer le concours adéquat au moment opportun avec une préparation satisfaisante et une forte identité artistique, peut ouvrir des portes qui resteraient fermées dans d’autres circonstances. Je vous suggère de découvrir toutes les informations sur la FMCIM et ses concours membres en visitant notre site internet à l’adresse www.wfimc-fmcim.org et de prendre le temps d’assister à l’un d’entre eux.
