Clara Haskil International Piano Competition 2021
The Clara Haskil International Piano Competition’s purpose is to discover a young musician capable of representing the Competition’s values: musicality, sensitivity, humility, constant re-evaluation, continual striving for excellence, attention to chamber music partners and respect for the composer’s musical text.
These values are inspired by the life and career of Clara Haskil, a Swiss pianist born in Bucharest, Romania in 1895 and who died in Brussels in 1960.
The programme reflects Clara Haskil’s vast repertoire through a recital, a chamber music performance and a concerto with orchestra.
The first editions of the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition were held in Lucerne; since 1973 they have been held in Vevey, where Clara Haskil lived from 1942 until her death. A street in Vevey bears her name.
