On Monday, the sovereign “has agreed to support us, granting a prize of € 1,000 that I will attribute to whom I judge worthy to receive”. And he is invited to also attend the opening concert, which will take place on Friday night, given by Manuel Vieillard, the winner of the competition last year, before the 63 young pianists in the competition of 18 nationalities. The Prince has not yet given an answer .
