philosophy

Vienna is universally considered the capital of classical music, and Wiener Konzerthaus is one of the most popular and prestigious classical concert halls, closely connected to iconic orchestras like Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra and Vienna Philharmonic. 

The purpose of the “2nd International Music Competition” is to discover musicians of outstanding personality and provide awards that can launch international careers: recitals at the emblematic Vienna Konzerthaus; a video recording (all costs covered); cash prizes; many special awards, and the service of international management offered to the winners.

 

Music students and young professionals of all nationalities, ages and musical disciplines (piano, strings, wind, voice and chamber music) are invited to apply.

 

Applicants will participate in one of the following age categories: Young Artist (less than 19 years old), Virtuoso (19 to 26 years old) and Professional (no age limit, minimum age: 27 years old). In each category, many Golden and Silver medals will be awarded.

 

At least 10 musicians will receive a First Grand Award, and will perform at the winners’ concert at Konzerthaus (Mozart Saal). They will receive a cash prize, a recording from the concert, professional pictures and free invitations.

In order to avoid travel expenses, the "2nd Vienna International Music Competition" has been designed so that musicians can show all their potential through video recordings (no travel required to apply). The aim of this competition is to find performers with a strong artistic personality and stage presence. The emphasis is therefore not on the purely technical aspect of the performance, but also on the artistic charisma of the performer.
