Albena Petrovic is President/Founder of the International Composition Competition “Artistes en Herbe” ("Budding Artists") under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of Luxembourg. Already with her fifth edition, the Competition is unique in its kind in Western Europe - children of tenders’ age may compete in the Junior category, and in Senior category adult composers are invited to compose music which will enrich the pedagogic repertoire for children. Véronique Nosbaum is a very special personality in Luxembourg vocal scenery. She is one of those naturally involved in many kinds of art creation - contemporary art, theatre, literature, music. Romain Nosbaum is an individualist among the pianists of his generation. Without airs and graces, but with modesty and passionate devotion, he is solely focused on music. Both the grand gesture and sheer brilliancy are not his main focus – instead, his playing stands out through intelligence, subtle individuality and technical perfection.
