French cancel major violin competition

The Concours international Long Thibaud Crespin, which should have been held in November, has been called off due to the Covid pandemic. The artistic director is Renaud Capucon.

Clearly, the advice from the French government is that Coronavirus will continue to suppress musical activity for the rest of 2021.


This year’s other major contest, the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, is scheduled for November.
