International FRANZ LISZT Piano Competition Weimar–Bayreuth 2021

The 10th International FRANZ LISZT Piano Competition Weimar–Bayreuth is open to pianists of all nationalities who were born after 1 January 1990.

The competition is comprised of a pre-selection/audition and four rounds of judging. The first round of the competition will take place in Bayreuth and all other rounds will take place in Weimar. The competition is open to the public in all four rounds.

Franz Liszt, after whom the competition and the University of Music in Weimar is named, always felt obligated to support young artists. He was significantly more than “just” a piano virtuoso and composer: He worked over a period of decades as a teacher, court conductor, a writer on music and cultural politician in Weimar.

His (never implemented) plans for a Goethe-Stiftung (Goethe-foundation) were intended to yearly award prizes in the areas of music, painting, sculpture and literature – the International FRANZ LISZT Piano Competition Weimar-Bayreuth still keeps several of these ideas alive even in the 21st century. Liszt probably would have liked the idea of a pianist performance comparison in his own name. In the last few years of his life every summer, he gave a free of charge, week long master class to eleven selected pianists in the Weimar “Hofgärtnerei” (court garden) – today known as the Liszt house.

The 10th International FRANZ LISZT Piano Competition Weimar – Bayreuth is open to pianists of all nationalities who were born after 1 January 1990. The management may make exceptions in certain cases.

The competition is comprised of a pre-selection/audition and four rounds of judging. The first round of the competition will take place in Bayreuth and all other rounds will take place in Weimar. The competition is open to the public in all four rounds.

The registration deadline is the 1st of June 2021.
