The Danish National Symphony Orchestra has received a record number of 612 applications from young conductors wishing to compete for the prizes in the Malko Competition for Young Conductors next June, a news release says.

While the majority of the applicants come from the main territories of classical music in Europe, USA, Russia and Asia, there are also many applications from such areas as South and Central America as well – making a total of no less than 65 nationalities. All the applicants sent in video recordings that in the months ahead will be scrutinised by an internationally composed pre-jury.
