The Manhattan International Music Competition has become a major symbol of New York's classical music life. The purpose of the “4th Manhattan International Music Competition” is to discover artists of outstanding personality and provide awards that can launch international careers: recitals at Carnegie Hall, one of the most emblematic venues in the world; a CD recording with worldwide distribution (all costs covered), and the service of international management offered to the winners.

This competition has enhanced our prior winners' professional careers. After winning the Manhattan International Music Competition, they have performed in the most prestigious venues and festivals (Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall,  Musikverein, Mariinsky theatre, Royal Opera House, Salzburg Festival, La Monnaie, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Opera de Paris, Lincoln Center, Festival Aix en Provence, etc.), and have performed as soloists with renowned international orchestras.

Carnegie Hall is a legendary concert hall, where many great artists of the 20th century started their careers. On the other hand, recording a CD is a "must" for a young musician in current times: the best credential to find engagements and get music reviews. The Orpheus Classical label will handle the process from beginning to end and will give 1.000 CDs to the winner, who will retain 100% of the recording rights.

The aim of this competition is to find performers with a strong artistic personality and stage presence. The emphasis is therefore not on the purely technical aspect of the performance, but also on the artistic charisma of the performer.

In order to avoid travel expenses, the "4th Manhattan International Music Competition" has been designed so that musicians can show all their potential through video recordings (no travel required to apply). Traveling, live auditions and reference letters are not required… Only the courage to demonstrate through some videos that the candidate possesses a distinctive personality and remarkable musicality.
