The giants of world jazz and young artists from around the world will compete for the main prize of the first Zbigniew Seifert Jazz Violin Competition in Cracow and Lusławice, southern Poland, July 16-19.

The idea behind the contest is to honor the legacy of Polish jazz violin genius Zbigniew Seifert. Jazz trumpeter Tomasz Stańko who became hugely successful in Europe playing with Seifert called the violinist ”a national treasure”. During his career Seifert worked also with jazz stars like Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield or Nana Vasconcelos.

The competition, organized for the first time this year, got an extremely good response from musicians all over the world; it already seems to be the most internationally significant jazz violin contest.The jury has chosen ten contestants out of 63 sent entries for the first part of the competition. These violinists will perform during the open to the audience auditions at the Krzysztof Penderecki European Center for Music in Lusławice, July 16-18.

The final concert will take place at Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Cracow on July 19. That is also when the winners of the competition will be announced.
