This year’s winner of the Grachtenfestival Conservatory Competition is the Dianto Reed Quintet! The jury praised the excellent interaction and powerful stage presence of the members of the reed quintet: María González Bullón, oboe; María Luisa Olmos Rios, clarinet; Ovidi Martí Garasa, alto saxophone; Erick Rojas Toapanta, bass clarinet, en María Losada Burgo, bassoon.
The Dianto Reed Quintet will get the opportunity to give a concert at the 2021 edition of the Grachtenfestival 2021, plus radio and television performances and a theatre tour in the 2021-2022 season.
Harpist Joost Willemse was also a finalist. He received an honourable mention - as a substitute for the Audience Prize, which couldn’t be awarded this year - for the virtuosity and credibility of his performance.
