The international jury is presided by Russian maestro Gennady Rozdhestvensky. The other members of the jury are: Lutz Köhler, conductor and president of the jury of the Munich International Music Competition; Alejandro Posada, principal conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Castile and Leon and the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia; John Neschling, conductor of the Sao Paulo State Symphony Orchestra; Cornelia Schmid, president of the Konzertscmid Hannover; and the Cadaqués Orchestra.

COMMITMENT TO THE MUSIC OF OUR DAY

The final concert of the competition sees the premiere of a work specially commissioned, in collaboration with the Centro para la Difusión de la Música Contemporánea, to test the young conductors.

The work is Cap quers by the composer David del Puerto, winner of the 2005 Spanish National Music Prize.

Since its founding, the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition has grown in prestige, thanks in part to the subsequent careers of some of its most outstanding winners, including Gianandrea Noseda, Vasily Petrenko, Gloria Isabel Ramos, Alejandro Posada and Paul González.
