Simon Zhu, Simone Rugani: Talents at Bologna Festival

About the Event

The Paganini Prize, known as the violin Nobel Prize, has the power to transform lives, as past winners like Salvatore Accardo, Gidon Kremer, Leonidas Kavakos, Isabelle Faust, and Ilya Gringolts can confirm. Simon Zhu, a 22‐year‐old German from Tübingen, claimed victory in the 57th edition last October, joining their esteemed company. In Bologna, he showcases a program that skillfully combines classicism and virtuosity, highlighted by a solo violin piece by Silvia Colasanti, specially commissioned by the Paganini Prize from the Roman composer.
