International Fritz Kreisler Violin Competition 2022

The Fritz Kreisler International Violin Competition will be held in Vienna from 17 to 25 September 2022. This competition is open to all violinists born after September 25, 1991, who are ready to embark upon an international career. The public rounds are preceded by a pre-selection, based on specific documents and video recordings submitted by the candidates. The names of the jury members will be announced in the website of the competition in January 2022.

The programme of the competition should represent the extraordinary wealth of violin repertoire from the Baroque period to the present. The competition is divided into four rounds: Preselection, Semi-Final and Final I and Gala-Final. Applicants will have freedom in arranging their 9-piece programme beforehand according to the choices and time limits given for each round. The whole programme has to be played from memory except for the duo composition for violin and piano as well as the modern composition from the 20th and 21st century.

Registration from January 15, 2022 to May 16, 2022.


Austria’s most important violin competition dates back to the prize that Fritz Kreisler privately donated every year, before 1938, for the best violin student at the Vienna Music Academy.

1979 saw the year that the competition became international, where violinists of all nationalities were able to compete on the centre stage. Yehudi Menuhin was on the jury at this time.

Since 1979, the International Fritz Kreisler Society typically organizes the International Fritz Kreisler Violin Competition every four years at the Vienna Musikverein or the Vienna Konzerthaus
