History

The Eurovision Young Musicians competition began in 1982, with 6 participating countries and has become one of the most important classical music competitions on an international level.

This biennial competition for young, talented musicians has been an important and effective tool for fostering the careers of promising, talented musicians in Europe, by allowing them to perform to the widest possible audience.

The new format, introduced in 2006, has been very popular not only with the large audience in Vienna, but also with television viewers throughout Europe.
