At this year’s VP Bank Classic Festival in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, ICMA President Remy Franck presented the 16-year-old German cellist Philipp Schupelius, the winner of the ICMA Discovery Award 2020. In a chamber music concert at the Kursaal of Bad Ragaz Grand Resort, Philipp amazed the audience with a transcription of Schubert’s Erlkönig by Bernhard Cossmann. Together with pianist Polina Sasko he gave a very stylish performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Variations of ‘Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen’ from Mozarts Magic Flute. Finally, he played Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Trio op. 1/3 together with pianist Arsen Dalibaltayan and violinist Clara Shen.
