The Nadia and Lili Boulanger International Voice-Piano Competition has been held in Paris every two years since 2001 and helps to promote the careers of singers and pianists who perform there as a duet.
Candidates under 32 years of age come from all over the word. The repertoire they are asked to perform requires a balance between Lieder and French melody with at leat one work by Nadia Boulanger or Lili Boulanger.
During Nadia and Lili Boulanger’s childhood and lifetime French melody
reached a peak to which they were witnesses and fervent promoters: Lili
and Nadia as composers, Nadia as performer and extraordinary teacher. The
CNLB International Voice-Piano Competition is part of this heritage,
with the threefold objective of promoting young artists of a very high
level, bringing the repertoire of melody and song to life and
encouraging the creation of new works.
