For the 2023 edition of TICC, three ensembles—Trio Incendio, Trio Tokava, and Rilian Trio—were selected from an initial group of nine participants to compete in the final, which took place on September 30 at Norway's Free Mason Hall.
The results of the competition are as follows:
Additionally, the Rilian Trio received The Commission Prize (1,000 EURO) and the Audience Prize, while the Jury's Special Prize was awarded to Trio Tokava.
The winning ensembles will be granted opportunities for performances, participation in masterclasses, and a print by the esteemed Norwegian artist Håvard Homstvedt. Moreover, a special prize from the jury will also be presented.
The jury for this competition, led by Anthony Marwood, includes Anja Lechner, Arisa Fujita, Berit Cardas, Christian Ihle Hadland, Daniel Müller-Schott, and Stefan Mendl.
