13 Sep 2013

At this year’s ARD International Music Competition Sophie Dartigalongue, contra-bassoonist with the Berliner Philharmoniker since May 2013, has won second place, which she shares with the Japanese Rie Koyama, and the audience award. A first prize was not awarded. The French musician impressed with her colourful, lyrical playing. Jury member Dag Jensen said: “She’s a very mature musician, she gets to the core of the music, but also shows virtuosity when it matters.” Our congratulations to Sophie Dartigalongue!
