Berliner International Music Competition
- Application deadline is January 31st
The purpose of the “First Berliner International Music Competition” is to discover artists of outstanding personality and provide awards which can help to launch international careers: recitals at the Berlin Philharmonie (Chamber Music Hall), one of the most emblematic venues in the world; a CD recording with worldwide distribution, and the service of international management offered to the winners.
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.
In order to avoid travel expenses, the "First Berliner International Music Competition" has been designed so that musicians can show all their potential through video recordings (no traveling required). In addition, they are asked to provide the repertoire they would play at the Berlin Philharmonie or record for the CD release: a free recital that reflects their personality.
The First edition of the Berliner International Music Competition is open to a wide range of performers and is divided into three groups: pianists, singers and string performers. The age limit is 35.
