The Petworth Festival welcomes Ziyu He, the newly crowned Senior First Prize winner of the 2016 Menuhin Competition. This is the world’s leading competition for young violinists, held every two years in a different world city; most recently Austin, Texas in 2014, Beijing in 2012 and Oslo in 2010. It attracts hundreds of entries from over 45 countries, only 44 of the world’s very best young violinists being invited to participate. The competition discovers, encourages and nurtures exceptionally talented young musicians from throughout the world under the age of 22 years. Recent winners have included Nikolaj Znaider, Tasmin Little, Julia Fischer and Ilya Gringolts. Ziyu He will be joined by acclaimed accompanist and Menuhin Prize Artistic Director Gordon Back.

The 2016 Competition in London took place from 7-17 April 2016, celebrating the Menuhin centenary.
