The Eurovision Young Musicians 2014 was the seventeenth edition of the Eurovision Young Musicians, held outside the Cologne Cathedral in Cologne, Germany, on 31 May 2014. Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR), musicians from fourteen countries participated in the televised final. This was the fifth time that the competition was held on an open-air stage. Germany previously hosted the contest in 2002.
All participants performed a classical piece of their choice accompanied by the WDR Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Kristiina Poska. This year, 14 countries participated in the contest. Malta and Moldova made their debut at the Eurovision Young Musicians. Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia and Ukraine withdrew from this year's competition. Hungary returned for the first time since 2000. Sweden last took part in 2010, whilst Portugal had not entered since hosting in 1996.
The semi final stage of the contest was dropped this year, however a preliminary round was held over two days on 26 & 27 May and streamed live on youngmusicians.tv. Each musician was required to play for up to 15 minutes in this round and a maximum of five minutes in the Grand Final on 31 May. The international jury scored each musician and performance during the preliminary round. The scores were added to those given in the Grand Final to decide the three prize winners.
The candidates were accompanied by the WDR Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Estonian conductor Kristiina Poska. The winner will have a chance to appear with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in 2015.
All participating countries automatically qualified for the final on 31 May 2014. The preliminary round was held in two parts. The first part was held on 26 May 2014 and the second on 27 May 2014. The professional jury awarded points in this round.
