Guide to the Naumburg International Violin Competition

Background info
Past laureates

The Walter W Naumburg Foundation was founded in 1926 by Walter W Naumburg and continues today in the pursuit of ideals set out by Mr Naumburg. His desire to assist gifted young musicians in America has made possible a long-standing program of competitions and awards in solo and chamber music performance, composer recordings and conducting. It was Mr Naumburg’s firm belief that such competitions were not only for the benefit of new stars, but would also be for those talented young musicians who would become prime movers in the development of the highest standards of musical excellence throughout America.  

Naumburg rotates its competitions each year. Competitions have included piano, chamber music, cello, vocal, viola, clarinet and flute. For competition applications and details please visit the Walter W Naumburg Foundation website
