Corporate Prix Jeunes Solistes
The Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes 2017 has been awarded to Valentine Michaud. The likeable saxophonist plans not only to complete her studies at the Zurich University of the Arts this year, but also hopes to launch her career as a professional musician by performing at the Lucerne Festival and the Swiss Chamber Music Festival in Adelboden. Michaud, who is French by birth but now lives in Lausanne, will not let this opportunity pass her by, thanks as much to her charm and winning personality as her undoubted technical abilities.
In 2015, Serb Vojin Kocić became the first guitarist to win the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes. He talks to us about his musical ambitions, and what the guitar means to him.
