Last year, we celebrated the Geneva Competition's 75th Anniversary ; this year we're celebrating its 70th edition! To celebrate these events, two special publications :
A book on the history of the competition.
"Une Certaine Idée de la Musique - Le Concours de Genève : 1939-2914" written by Marie Duchêne Thégarid
Written by music historian Marie Duchêne Thégarid, it gives a thorough account of the birth and life of the Geneva Competition. Beautifully illustrated, it covers every aspect of the competition, narrating this human and artistic adventure and describing how the Geneva Competition fits into a cultural landscape affected by history’s turmoil. Sponsored by the Research Fund of the HES-so, published by Slatkine

Radio Télévision Suisse has been a faithful partner of the Geneva Competition from the beginning : hundreds of recordings can now testify to the many young artists in a variety of disciplines who took part in the competition and went on to become international stars. We chose forty recordings from over the years featuring different instruments. Awarded as the « Coup de Coeur Breguet » Prize 2014. Published by Claves, in partnership with the RTS.
