Trianon is no stranger to running competitions. Previous winners of contests include many names now well known both on the national and international circuit.
One such person is Anthony Marwood who was described by one US magazine as "one of the finest young violinists now before the public". He won the Trianon Music Group's Strings Competition in 1983.
