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. There are 15 judges, Zakhar Bron, Maxim Vengerov, Philip Setzer, Martin Campbell-White and others have their faces.

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.
