The Kocian Violin Competition is undoubtedly one of the most important violin competitions in the world for children under the age of sixteen. Becoming its laureate at the age of thirteen was a turning point for me. The success brought new opportunities and opened new doors. Since 2016, I have been the competition’s patron. My aim is to promote the competition to the broader public, referring not only to Maestro Kocian’s virtuosity, but also to so many other magnificent violinists from the past and today. And that brought me to the idea of initiating, with FOK and my fellow violinists, a special concert to mark the competition’s 60th anniversary. The concert will unite on one stage the competition’s laureates across several generations. I believe that this evening will celebrate the violin, beautiful music and above all will be a show of respect and a tribute to Jaroslav Kocian, one of the best violinists of all times.
