BREGUET AND THE GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COMPETITION: A SHARED PASSION

24/10/2012

For 11 years, Montres Breguet SA lends its support to the Geneva International Music Competition. This unique long-term partnership undeniably shows Breguet’s determination to support young musical talents and thereby promote art and culture. It also brings to mind the fact that famous composers and musicians – such as Gioachino Rossini, Arthur Rubinstein and Sergei Rachmaninov – were unconditional admirers and owners of Breguet watches.

The 67th edition of the Geneva International Music Competition, which will take place from Friday 2 to Thursday 15 November 2012, is entirely dedicated to piano. 32 young pianists coming from 12 different countries will perform their art during public sessions at the Geneva Conservatory and the Studio Ernest Ansermet concert hall (RTS). A jury, composed of 9 piano specialists from all over the world, as well as discerning music-lovers from Montres Breguet SA, will assess the contestants.

At the end of the contest, Breguet will present its special "Coup de Cœur" prize, which enables the winner in one of two contest categories to finance the production of a recording. Breguet hopes to contribute in this way to the international promotion and success of the next generation of musicians.
