International Beethoven Piano Competition Vienna 2021
The International Beethoven Piano Competition Vienna is Austria’s oldest international piano competition and ranks among the most renowned music competitions today.
Founded more than 50 years ago, it is hosted by the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
The first round will take place in April 2021 in an online format only.
We are in touch with all previously chosen candidates to prepare the necessary steps (recordings will be done without audiences, in one take, and with the same repertoire requirements). All recordings from our candidates will be made available in April 2021 on our website and other outlets, to be listened to by our esteemed online audience, as well as the international jury. At the end of April 2021, the 12 semi finalists will be announced.
These candidates will then be invited to perform live in Vienna in October 2021.
