Johann Matthias Sperger Competition for Double Bass
The mission of the International J.M. Sperger Society is the international advancement of the largest string instrument, the double bass, and its concert literature with patronage and cultural promotion of the important composer and double bassist Johannes Sperger.
The committed association also aims to expand the repertoire through the commissioning of contemporary works, musicological work and research, as well as the development of the youth and wider community. Collaborations exist with various universities as well as the Schwerin State Library. The International J.M. Sperger Double Bass Competition is the internationally recognised flagship of the International J.M. Sperger Society’s promotion of excellence.
Since 2016, the International J.M. Sperger Society e.V. and thus also the International J.M. Sperger Competition for Double Bass has been directed by Christine Hoock / University Mozarteum Salzburg, together with her team from Germany, Austria and Portugal. The International J.M. Sperger Society is the promoter of the competition, which takes place every two years and in 2022 will be organised in cooperation with the Rostock University of Music and Drama / Germany.
Registration and Program details will be available from May 2021.
