Artists in residence

For many years, literati, musicians, philosophers and artists have returned to the Upper Engadin again and again to write, compose, practise, think and paint, surrounded by the enchanting, breathtaking scenery. The Laudinella, established as a hotel and cooperative to cater for the music camps that were popular in the 1950s, is actively living its cultural origins through its Artist in Residence programme. In close collaboration with various cultural partners, artists from all genres are invited to stay here and engage in their professional activities.

Concours Géza Anda

The Géza Anda Foundation, set up in 1978 in commemoration of pianist Géza Anda promotes the development of promising young pianists by holding an international piano competition, which is held every three years in Zurich. The Concours Géza Anda is very special and unique – and not just because of the high-profile names who sit on the jury.

The Laudinella Foundation has been inviting the three prize-winners on residencies at the Laudinella since 1997. At the end of their stay, they each give a piano recital. They are all loving coming back to the Laudinella, even after having caused a sensation in the great concerts halls of the world.
