Unveiling talented young classical musicians
The Safran Foundation for Music supports especially promising young musicians during their training and as their careers develop, via grants, helps in purchasing an instrument or issuing a CD, etc. To date, Safran has supported 164 projects of this type.
In 2014, thanks to Safran Corporate Foundation' support, the young clarinetist Raphaël Sévère has recorded a critically-acclaimed CD with Adam Laloum (piano) and Victor Julien-Laferrière (cello).
In 2014 also, Safran Corporate Foundation for Music supported the violinist Irène Duval, who has won several international competitions. The Foundation contributed to the purchase of her bow.
The annual Safran Foundation for Music Award honors a particularly talented young musician each year. In 2015, it went to the Russian violinist, Fedor Rudin, following a "play off" between five young talented musicians. Fedor Rudin is the eighth artist to be rewarded since this Award has been created.
