This year, at the second edition of the Cadenza Contest – The Online Music Competition organised by Cadenza Music Management, soprano coloratura Anna Subedi won in the Singers category.
The objective of the contest is to provide a platform for young artists to present themselves in a 21st century way, who, given the epidemiological situation, are trying to find new ways to reach the audience. The international jury (Alessandro Ariosi, director of Ariosi Management, Frédéric Deloche, director of Opera de Nice, Michael Gruber, representative of the German artist management agency Opera4u, Davide La Bollita, Artistic Consultant of the Varna Opera House, and Stefano Trespidi, deputy artistic director of the Arena di Verona) decided in two rounds, by evaluating video recordings.
At the non-age-limited competition, Anna Subedi was the only Hungarian among more than 400 singers from five continents of the world to reach the final of the 20 best singers from 10 countries. Anna Subedi won a grant of €1,000 with Händel’s Clori mia bella Clori.
Soprano coloratura Anna Subedi began her musical studies at the age of four as a pianist with Katalin Barta at the Frédéric Chopin Music School in Gödöllő, and later, beside majoring in piano, solfège, and harpsichord, she began to learn singing with Julia Barna at the Szent István Secondary School of Music. She graduated from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music majoring in classical harpsichord with Borbála Dobozy, and later graduated with a major in classical singing with Ingrid Kertesi. During her master’s studies, she studied opera singing at the Conservatoire Royal in Brussels with Valérie Guillorit with an Erasmus+ scholarship, and later, as a holder of a Campus Mundi scholarship, she could even teach in the institution.
