Announcement of the results of the 2nd Lin Yao Ji International Competition for Violin Compositions

The Lin Yao Ji Music Foundation of China is pleased to announce the results of the 2nd Lin Yao Ji International Competition for Violin Compositions. We would like to extend our thanks to all participating composers.

We are extremely grateful to Members of the Competition’s Adjudication Panel – Professors Chen Yi (Chair), Victor Chan and Stephen Hartke, who all worked hard to study and evaluate the entries received. During the process of adjudication, each Member of the Panel adjudicated on the works submitted (i) without knowledge of the names or background of the composers and (ii) independently without consultation with or knowledge of scores given by other Members. 

The Winner of each Category was the composition which received the highest aggregate score awarded by Members of the Panel. Merit Awards were selected at the discretion of the Adjudication Panel upon reviewing works that were within the top aggregate scores in the respective categories. 

We congratulate the following Prize Winners of the Competition:

Category A: Solo Violin

  • Winner: Yang Ming (China), “Decomposition I” for solo violin

Category B: Duo for violin and one other instrument

  • Winner: Li Tianran (China), "Ode to the Drinking 《酒德頌》" for violin and piano

Category C: Ensemble - violin and two to four additional instruments 

  • Winner: Satoshi Kanazawa (Japan), “In the gray light of dawn” for violin, viola, cello and piano

Two Merit Awards, in the sum of US$200 each, were awarded by the Foundation to

  • Daniel Ting-Cheung Lo (United Kingdom), "In the quietness of a bamboo grove 《幽篁》" for solo violin
  • Jean-Patrick Besingrand (French), "Mimétisme" for violin and vibraphone

The LYJ Music Foundation intends to present winning works of each Category at public concerts in China and Hong Kong in the coming year. Winners of each Category will be contacted individually by the Foundation.
