Welcome to the
for young conductors
Copenhagen, April 20th to 27th 2018
The Malko Competition is the Danish National Symphony Orchestra’s international competition for conductors. It has been held every three years since 1965. At the heart of the competition is the goal to identify and bring out those great young musical talents who will one day grace the podia of leading orchestras all over the world.
As it has done from the very beginning, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra will dedicate all of its skills and energies to the competition. For the orchestra, the Malko Competition is about providing maximum artistic expression in partnership with the conductor in the same creative way as happens in all of its concerts throughout its orchestral season.
Fabio Luisi, principal conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, is the chairman of the 2018 edition of the Malko Competition and will be mentor to its winner.
