10th Grzegorz Fitelberg International Conducting Competition : 17-26 nov.

Chloe Dufresne is one of the participants selected for the first round of the 10th Grzegorz Fitelberg International Competition.

“This is one of the most difficult conducting competitions in the world. Its difficulty lies in the great number of compositions that need to be learnt and prepared, which need to be mastered. This constitutes a great challenge, and it also allowed me to get to know the genuine wealth of Polish music. I have later included many Polish compositions in the programmes of my concerts throughout the world.” Eugene Tzigane
