Johann Nepomuk Hummel International Piano Competition 2021

The Johann Nepomuk Hummel International Piano Competition aims at helping the active cultivation of the legacy of this great composer and piano virtuoso. Simultaneously the organizers hope to help young remarkable pianists to start a concert career.

Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778–1837), a native of Bratislava, was considered one of the greatests composers and pianists during his life. He studied with Mozart, Albrechtsberger, Salieri and Haydn. As a composer Hummel bridges two epochs. His output comprises almost all significant music genres of the turn of the 19th century (excluding symphony). He excelled most of all in the realm of virtuoso piano music. From the stylistic point of view Hummel unites elements of Late Classicism (being considered its most important representative in his time) with many Early Romantic elements. Thus Hummel is an exponent of the style which follows the legacy of Clementi, Mozart and Beethoven, simultaneously adumbrating Schubert, Mendelssohn, Chopin, young Liszt and Schumann.

Pianists of all nationalities born after September 6th 1989 are welcome to take part in the competition.

The filled-in application form should be sent no later than on May 31st 2021.
