The contest was established in commemoration of Isaac Stern (1920-2001), the mastro of the violin representing the 20th century. Organized by Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.

Stern was visited in June 1979 in response to Foreign Minister Zhou Enlai’s invitation from China. It involves families and pianists, and staying for a month is deeply related to China. During his stay, he made public lessons and concerts. In 1980, a documentary film “From Mao to Mozart – Isacc Stern in China” photographing his state in China has been released.
