»Rising Stars« is probably Europe’s coolest and most productive programme promoting musical excellence: the 22 concert halls from across the continent that form the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) have been presenting six outstanding young musicians or ensembles to the public at their world-famous venues every year since the 1995/96 season. The artists participating are all chosen as »Rising Stars« by ECHO itself. The project has been a success from the word go: artists like Daniel Müller-Schott, Emmanuel Pahud, Martin Grubinger, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Jörg Widmann, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Janine Jansen, Khatia Buniatishvili, the Belcea Quartet, Igor Levit and Antoine Tamestit, and many others now in today's top league of international soloists, were all »Rising Stars« at the outset of their careers.
