The task

Cathartic, disturbing, revolutionary, enigmatic, funny – unforgettable: concert programs made from these ingredients were what the “Berlin Prize for Young Artists” was looking for. The international music competition is curated by the online classical music magazine VAN and sponsored by Bank Julius Baer; the first final will take place in October 2020. 300 musicians have applied.


Within a week, we produced five portraits of the prizewinners at the Elbphilharmonie and put them together to form a documentary, which was shown on 27.09.2020 in the “Elbphilharmonie Konzertkino” and simultaneously as an online stream. It gives an intimate insight into the life realities and artistic worlds of the finalists.
