Juliana Myslov wins Dutch Harp Competition

British harpist Juliana Myslov wins the Dutch Harp Competition 2014.

On Sunday, March 2nd, 17-year old Juliana Myslov, from the United Kingdom, was crowned the overall winner of the Dutch Harp Competition 2014 – part of the Dutch Harp Festival. Not only did she win the First Prize – an award of € 10,000 and a concert tour in the 2014/15 season – but also the Audience Award, the Paul Patterson Prize for the best interpretation of the required piece, and the Dutch Radio 4 Young Talent Prize (studio/concert recording).

The second prize, an amount of € 5,000, went to the German harpist Markus Thalheimer (Germany), while Shiho Minami (Japan) took home the third prize – an amount of € 2,500.

The final round of the competition took place on Sunday, March 2nd, in the Vredenburg Leidsche Rijn concert hall of Utrecht. The harp performances were accompanied by the LUDWIG orchestra under the direction of Ed Spanjaard. Each of the three finalists played the first movement of a concerto by either Reinhold Glière or Carl Reineke, the required Piece Fantasia, a brand-new composition by Paul Patterson, and a ‘storytelling’ solo of their own choice.

The international jury consisted of pianist Nino Gvetadze, percussionist Ramon Lormans, harpists Sivan Magen, Isabelle Moretti, and Gwyneth Wentink and violist Mikhail Zemtsov, under the chairmanship of Volkskrant-music editor Guido van Oorschot. The final round was broadcasted live on the Dutch Harp Festival website, and parts of the concert will be broadcasted on national Dutch radio station Radio 4.  

The fourth edition of the Dutch Harp Festival will take place in the spring of 2016.
