The Gold Medal, the Guildhall School’s most prestigious prize for musicians, was founded and endowed by Sir H. Dixon Kimber in 1915. Since 1950 it has been open to singers and instrumentalists in alternate years. Previous winners include William Primrose (1922), Jacqueline du Pré (1960), Patricia Rozario (1979), Tasmin Little (1986) and Bryn Terfel (1989). This year is the turn of instrumentalists, who will perform before a Barbican Hall audience and a prestigious jury panel.
They will be judged by a prestigious jury panel, including Tasmin Little, renowned violinist and previous Gold Medal winner; Ivan Hewett, Chief Music Critic at The Daily Telegraph; Jonathan Vaughan, Director of Music at the Guildhall School and Dominic Wheeler, Head of Opera and conductor of the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra for the evening.
