The Hamburg-based cultural project TONALi inspires around 40,000 children and young people for classical music every year with an instrumental competition and a music education programme. One highlight is the TONALi Finale, which takes place for the first time at the Elbphilharmonie in 2017. This year’s rising stars are accompanied by the junge norddeutsche philharmonie under the baton of Swedish conductor Daniel Blendulf. The talented youth orchestra consists largely of music students and is known for its innovative concerts.
During the first part of the evening, the challenging, exciting and entertaining programme offers audience members three impressive violin concertos, which require the maximum of artistic ability from the young musicians. The three finalists have selected their own pieces. Tomasz Skweres is this year’s winner of TONALi’s composition prize with his work »Impact für Violine solo«.
The international jury will award three TONALi Prizes, financed with a total of €18,000, which has been donated by the Oscar and Vera Ritter Foundation. In addition, the audience has its say via SMS with a more than €3,000 Audience Award.
