A top-class jury will award numerous prizes and special prizes in seven age groups with prize money of up to €20,000. The prize winners' concert on Sunday, April 2, 2023 at 5 p.m. will feature the first prize winners in each age group as well as some special prize winners.

The competition offers talented children and young people a stage. It conveys the joy of making music and sustainably promotes the level and quality of music making as well as special talents. It combines professionalism and the highest standards with cordiality, appreciation and a pleasant atmosphere.
