Hindemith International Viola Competition 2021
The 1st Hindemith International Viola Competition will take place October 14-20, 2021 at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich. The competition is organised by the VIOLA FOUNDATION WALTER WITTE and the UNIVERSITY OF MUSIC AND PERFORMING ARTS MUNICH.
The competition focuses on the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Similar to Hindemith himself, we want to make new discoveries new things without neglecting the roots and achievements of previous epochs. Both the works of Paul Hindemith and new compositions will always be part of the competition.
As a follow-up to the “Hindemith Competition of the Viola Foundation Walter Witte”, the competition is aimed at young violists worldwide who are ready to embark on an international solo career. The focus of the competition is on the repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. Cash prizes totaling € 11,000 are planned. Some competition rounds can be followed online worldwide via livestream.
