World famous flute master, the Swiss flutist Aurèle Nicolet has presented Qiling Chen, professor from Central Conservatory of Music, and Sanqing Chen, flutist from Beijing Symphony Orchestra, with his flute music collections. This serves as a symbol of his deep love towards China. 2006 was Nicolet's eightieth anniversary. Therefore, it carries special and profound significance to name the competition after him
