The competition will be officially inaugurated on the 26th of October 2020 in the Fondation Gianadda by Martha Argerich, Akiko Ebi, Janusz Olejniczak and Alexis Golovine. Young interpreters will be presenting their virtuosic craft from the 26th to the 28th of October in the House of Music (Maison de la Musique) in Martigny surrounded by beautiful landscapes of the Swiss Alps, located in the center of the city and two steps from the railway station.
Octodure by its Roman name, Martigny is an important crossroads between Switzerland, France and Italy, close to the Mont Blanc massif, the highest peak in Europe. The region has attracted many famous people including Jean-Jaques Rousseau, Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Franz Liszt.
The concert hall is integrated into a large modern building with rehearsal rooms.
