« Young Talents » scholarship

Valuable financial support for young artists

The bursary was created at the very first edition of the Festival Musique & Vin in 2008, and is made up of a collection of funds raised by the auction held each year at the end of the festival’s closing concert.
To be eligible for this grant, these young people must be enrolled in higher education establishments or courses dedicated to music and recognised in a European or American circuit. The Jeunes Talents scholarship provides solid support for its winners.

It helps them to promote the start of their careers as artists (concerts, records, etc.) so that they can embark on their international careers with greater peace of mind.
The winners of the Festival Musique & Vin au Clos Vougeot will also have the opportunity to perform in concerts organised by the festival alongside the greatest artists on the international music circuit.

The Musique & Vin team has been committed to supporting and assisting them from the very first edition.

A Carte Blanche Young Talents concert
offered to the public

Every year, a free concert is given to the public, bringing together the winners of the Young Talent grant and the artists of the festival.

Last year, for the first time, the concert was held in the courtyard of the Hospices de Beaune with :
Soprano Martina Russomanno and pianist and violinist Ray Ushikubo surrounded by the Capucelli, Gautier Capuçon’s cello septet.

Award winners of previous editions

The young talents of recent editions are all pursuing brilliant musical careers.
The prize-winning singers have been invited to perform at some of the world’s leading opera houses, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera, Berlin’s Deutsche Opera, the Paris Opéra and London’s Covent Garden.

Some of our talented young instrumentalists, such as Pierre Génisson, Ismaël Margain and Pierre Fouchenneret, are now renowned soloists and sought-after chamber music partners. Other instrumentalists have joined some of Europe’s leading orchestras: Johannes Grosso is now oboe soloist with the Frankfurt Opera and the Bayreuth Festival, flutist Mathilde Caldérini has been appointed principal flute with the Orchestre national de Lille and Laura Jaillet, the first winner of the Musique & Vin award, is now a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra. The Trio Karénine recorded a highly acclaimed Schumann CD for the Aparté label thanks to a grant from Musique & Vin, and performs regularly.
