Attention please! New competition dates and change of programme Category II

Dear applicants,

Thank you very much for your interest in our competition and for all the application which have reached us so far.

Unfortunately, it cannot be predicted at this point in time whether the safety regulations will allow us to hold our competition in autumn, since our participants come from all over the world. After weighing up all my alternatives, we have decided to postpone the competition.

However, the categories with qualifying dates will remain the same, so that the already prepared competition programme can be played. Only one change was necessary, namely the concert in the final of category II.
Since the concert by Beethoven can also played by a small orchestra, we hope that a public performance in March will be possible.

We are looking forward to your applications!
