In the first half of the 20. century, classical, choral violin music was the maxim of violin virtuoso and pace-setting teacher Carl Fleisch, who declared war on superficial, musically subfusc mastery.
His pupil, the outstanding interpreter Alma Moodie, taught at Dr. Hoch's Conservatory and founded the Carl Fleisch tradition in Frankfurt.
The Fleisch Pupil and Moodie assistant Marie-Louise Graef-Moench was the long-standing teacher of the Prize donator Alois Kottmann, who wishes to recall and pay tribute to artistic expression in the Frankfurt Fleisch tradition.
The Prize is culture oriented and is independent of age but nonetheless its goal is essentially to promote young talent.
