Karajan Academy

In memory of Claudio Abbado

“It is a great honour for me to be associated with such an exceptional artist as Claudio Abbado,” says Vito Žuraj, winner of the Claudio Abbado composition prize. The Slovenian is regarded as one of the most creative minds of the young composer scene today. The work, Alavò, inspired by Abbado’s biography, is given its premiere by the students of the Karajan Academy. They also perform works by Robert Schumann and Žuraj's teacher, Wolfgang Rihm.
