In the automotive sector, in the midst of a climate emergency, hybridization is progressing. On the music side, driven by the pandemic, the next edition of the Geneva Competition is following a parallel path. While for the instrumental disciplines, mixing has long been essential in the competition, the management is betting for the next edition on the mix of practices.
With the frustration of digitization, this hybrid solution offers the advantage of a very real final part, after the early stages of online recitals. This in the case, of course, where the sanitary situation would allow it by the autumn horizon. By mixing the two practices, virtual and face-to-face, the competition explores a new and promising territory. Didier Schnorhk, director of the competition, presents this 75th edition dedicated to the oboe and cello, which was initially scheduled last year.
