“Jugend musiziert” competition
For many years, G. Henle Publishers has been supporting the Munich regional competition of ”Jugend musiziert” with special prizes. In 2018, the Günter Henle Urtext Prize of 8.000 euros was awarded for the very first time to the first prize winners of the national competition in the category “piano and string instrument”. Lara-Sophie Kluwe and Gina Friesicke, as well as Johannes Bettac and Felix Leissner were those chosen by the jury.
