The stars of today were once the young hopefuls of tomorrow: With the necessary talent, but also the appropriate support at the right time in the right place, former hopefuls became successful and in some cases world-famous greats of their genre. After the successful start last year, "Stars & Talents" is now entering its 2nd season. In this TV format for the promotion of young classical musicians in Austria, the youngest winners of the Austrian Music Promotion Prize for children and young people aged 5 to 18 "Die Goldene Note" are brought before the curtain. Initiator Leona König, who is also chairwoman of the "International Music Association for the Promotion of Highly Gifted Children," gives young talents the chance to meet stars of the classical music scene and exchange experiences. "Stars & Talents" accompanies the aspiring artists and their prominent role models during rehearsals, provides private insights into the lives of the children and young people and asks the stars for a personal interview. And finally, there is a joint performance of the star with the talent!
