Participants 2018 announcement

The TROMP jury has selected thirty talented percussionists from all over the world to take part in the competition which takes place 8 to 18 November. The selected participants will compete for a spot in the Finale to perform a new piece by Daníel Bjarnason with Asko|Schönberg, commissioned by TROMP.

Since TROMP specialized in percussion in 2010, there has been a growing interest in the international event, partly thanks to the Repertoire Days with master classes by jury members and laureates in Boston, Shanghai, Moscow and Tokyo, among others. From nearly thirty countries, over a hundred young talented percussionists applied for this edition. The members of the jury assessed the entries individually on the basis of anonymous audio recordings and selected 25 men and 5 women from 15 different countries to participate in the competition. Alongside Martin Grubinger, the jury members this edition are Michael Burritt (USA), Momoko Kamiya (Japan), Arnold Marinissen (The Netherlands), Mark Pekarsky (Russia), Emmanuel Séjourné (France) and Ruwen Yang (China).
