And the winner is ...Lisa Xanthopoulou
Bad Homburg. The Bad Homburg Conducting Competition once more offered a very high standard this year. 50 qualified candidates, of whom 95 per cent were men, were the competitors of the 34-year-old young Greek woman who led the field. For the first time in its history, the Bad Homburg Conducting Competition, sponsored by the BHF Bank Foundation, was won by a woman. Lisa Xanthopoulou, born in Thessalonica, Greece, withstood the phalanx of her male rivals, thus winning the prize of 10,000.- euros. Lisa Xanthopoulou carried all before her with a blend of concentrated work, precise manual technique and great conviction.
