Géza Anda International Piano Competition 2021
The 15th Géza Anda International Piano Competition will be held in Zurich from 27 May to 5 June 2021, and will be focussed on commemorating the great pianist on the occasion of his 100th birthday.
The aim of the Géza Anda Foundation is to promote young, talented pianists in the musical spirit of Géza Anda, and to this end it holds an international piano competition every three years. The Concours Géza Anda is a unique, extraordinary institution among the countless competitions that exist on the international scene today – and not just because of its distinguished jury, which comprises outstanding members of the music world.
Pianists of all nationalities born after 27 May 1989 are eligible.
The Competition is divided into the following rounds:
1. First Round: Audition (max. 25 min.)
2. Second Round: Recital (55 min.)
