Markneukirchen International Instrumental Competition 2022 for Horn and Tuba

Deadline for application: 10 January 2022 (Horn), 31 January 2022 (Tuba)

In 2020 the Markneukirchen International Instrumental Competition for Horn and Tuba had to be cancelled at short notice due to the Corona pandemic - in 2022 it will be made up for! It is with great pleasure that the organizers invite outstanding young horn and tuba players from all over the world to participate in this top-class competition over four rounds in the musical town of Markneukirchen. The best will receive attractive cash prizes worth a total of 31,000 euros as well as concert engagements and special prizes. In order to give everyone who was already interested in participating in 2020 another chance, the age limit for this edition of the competition has been exceptionally raised to 32 years (horn) and 34 years (tuba). zu „Markneukirchen International Instrumental Competition 2022 for Horn and Tuba“ more

Prof. Julius Berger appointed President for stringed Instruments

(cs) When paths in life cross and are shaped together, valuable encounters, mutual stimulation and joint creativity arise. The paths of Prof. Thomas Selditz and the Markneukirchen competition are also connected in this way. He had his first contact with the city of music in 1989 as a prize winner of the viola competition at that time. Later, in 2007, 2013 and 2017, he held the position of a jury chairman, and most recently, since 2018, he has been president of the competition for stringed instruments. It is therefore with regret that the board of the Markneukirchen International Instrumental Competition Association has accepted Prof. Selditz's wish not to pursue his path in the office of competition president in the future. At the same time, the board and the organisers of the competition express their great gratitude and appreciation for his successful work and wish Prof. Selditz all the best for his personal as well as artistic future. zu „Prof. Julius Berger appointed President for stringed Instruments“ more
