The Euroradio New Talent competition aims to encourage and promote young musicians through radio, by the organization of public concerts that are broadcast by Member organizations of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). Candidacies from young musicians can be submitted either by EBU Member organizations or by any Members of the IMC or European Music Council (EMC).
For the 2014 New Talent, the public finals will take place in Bratislava with the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra and the internationally renowned conductor Rastislav Stúr on 6 October as part of the Euroradio Concert Season. The closing concert will feature three works for soloist with orchestra, followed by a short orchestral work during which the jury will deliberate before announcing the "New Talent of the Year".
Eight from among twenty one candidates who have been competing to win the title of New Talent 2014 were selected by an international jury.
Before the finals, there will be the second round of the competition on 3 October. Two chamber music concerts will be part of it. Both will be played in Bratislava and both will be offered for live broadcast.
The winner of the New Talent 2013 is Romanian violinist Răzvan Stoica. His performance was accompanied by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Pawel Przytocki. This broadcast reached an estimated audience of 1,950,000 radio listeners via the Euroradio music exchange.
