Young violinist Lalita Svete at the Fidelio competition 2018 in Vienna
Lalita Svete performed a chamber music repertoire with her colleagues, German cellist Maike Clemens and Bulgarian pianist Iliyana Stoyanova, and received a scholarship award.
The Fidelio competition was initiated by the Hugo Breitner Society, which supports young talented artists of the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna. The competition takes place annually since 2002 and occupies an important place in the academic year for students of the Musik and Arts University of the City of Vienna, such as Lalita Svete.
The competition provides the possibility to participate in the categories Fidelio.Interpretation or Fidelio.Kreation. The juries of the preliminary rounds are made up of lecturers at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna, while the juries of the main rounds are made up of artists, art educators and cultural managers. Thus a high-profile external jury appointed soloists and ensembles for a scholarship of the Hugo Breitner Society.
On 5 December Lalita Svete performed a chamber music repertoire with her colleagues, German cellist Maike Clemens and Bulgarian pianist Iliyana Stoyanova, and received a scholarship award of 1.500 eur in the category of Fidelio.Interpretation. The competition included more than 20 classical chamber ensembles, from which only 7 were awarded.
Lalita Svete, born in 1996 in Vienna, received her first violin lesson at the age of four at the Music School in Maribor. She made her debut as a soloist at the age of seven and continued giving concerts throughout her career at venues such as the Wiener Konzerthaus, Musikverein, Slovenian Philharmonic, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, and at venues in the USA. She is currently studying with Boris Brovtsyn at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna. Before her university studies, she was mentored by Arkadij Winokurow and Lidia Baich and received many first prize awards at competitions in Italy, Slovenia and abroad. She performed with orchestras such as the Slovenian Radio Symphonic Orchestra (2016) and the Kiev Camerata (2017) with Valeriy Matyukhin. In 2007 Lalita Svete toured Croatia, Liechtenstein and Austria with the Zagreb Soloists.
