Organizers of the 3rd Ysaye International Music Competition 2020


Elena Lavrenov



Ashot Khachatourian

Artistic Director

Eugene Ysaye is considered as one of the greatest musicians of all time. His compositions mainly dedicated to the violin reveal his great knowledge of the instrument. The connection between the melody and the harmony proves his incredible composing skills. 

In memory of Eugene Ysaye, the organizers of this edition, Elena Lavrenov and Ashot Khachatourian, wish to create a high level competition for young musicians. Their goal is to develop culture in Liege and give a chance for musicians from all around the world to show their talent.  


Three prizes will be awarded per category. Cash prizes, instrumental material and vouchers will be distributed to the winners. The prizes will be awarded by the jury members and sponsors to the winners of the competition on the 11th of July 2020 at the end of the gala concert.
