In addition, several Eisler students or alumni were awarded a scholarship from the music competition, which is linked to the arrangement of concerts. These 12 outstanding soloists and 6 ensembles include the Elaia Quartet, who are studying chamber music with Prof. Wolfgang Redik, the two clarinettists Lauriane Maudry and Susanne Geuer from the class of Prof. Martin Spangenberg, and the bassoonist Michaela Špačková, currently taking her Konzertexamen with Professor Volker Tessmann.
