Launched in 2017, the international event is organised in a six-year cycle, with the odd-numbered years seeing the instrumentalist competitions (sequentially: violinists, pianists then string quartets), while the even-numbered years are reserved for composers, with pieces written for the instrument of the following year.
This year, the prestigious international jury will be composed of: Kossuth Prize-winning violinists Barnabás Kelemen and János Rolla; Széchenyi Prize Laureate Tibor Tallián; violinist Mikhail Kopelman; Professor and Vice-Rector of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, violinst Johannes Meissl; lecturer at the Tokyo University of the Arts, violinist Ami Oike; as well as violinist and violist Barry Shiffman. The Gala Concert will be held at the Liszt Academy on 31st October 2021.
Date: 25th-31st October 2021
Venue: Liszt Academy, 1061 Budapest, Liszt Ferenc tér 8.
