De Unges Konsert Young Soloists Competition gets more intense every year as the finest young performers from Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland vie for the honour of appearing with the Bergen Philharmonic, as well as earning a career-boosting scholarship from the Kavli Trust. It is always an inspiration to experience the dedication and accomplishment of young artists.
