(winner of the 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition) enjoying the beach escape near Nelson.

Our Winners’ Tour is half way through.  Ioana Cristina (2017 winner) and Andrey Gugnin (Sydney International Piano Competition 2016 winner) have performed their way through the South and North Islands of New Zealand, nipped across the ditch for concerts in Melbourne and Sydney and after a few more NZ performances, they record their Schubert, Enescu and Brahms repertoire for the Atoll label. 

Ioana Cristina stays with us another week to perform Shostakovich with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra on the 25th of the month. 

Ioana Cristina Goicea and Andrey Gugnin perform at the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts.

You can also follow Ioana and Andrey's adventures on our blog, Keep Up With the Play, or our Instagram @violincompetition.

Australian violinist, Dale Barltrop, returns, 18 years later, to the Michael Hill – this time as a judge.  

2001 was our inaugural competition and the first international violin competition Dale entered – a young man of just 18.  We are over the moon his career has exploded and are grateful he can fit us in next year with his busy schedule (first violin Australian String Quartet and Concertmaster Melbourne Symphony Orchestra).

Dale joins other luminaries on the international judging panel.
