Further information is available here

05.21. - The preliminary round has been completed.

The results of the preliminary round have been determined and communicated to all participants. 

09.20 - The piano competition will be postponed to 2021!

Due to the current entry and quarantine regulations, it is unfortunately currently not possible to hold a public competition with international participants in September 2020. Some of the participants from abroad would have to go into quarantine, which would mean an unfair disadvantage to them. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the competition to 17. - 19. September 2021 according to the current situation regarding the Corona pandemic.


All applicants who applied in 2020 will still be eligible, just the competition will be postponed.
