Szymanowski Competition / 1st stage / string quartet - NOSPR

Szymanowski Competition / 1st stage / string quartet

Performers
10:30-11:15 – Quíron Quartet
11:15-12:00 – Turicum Quartet
II Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition

A string quartet is an intimate form. It is a most challenging form, both for the composer and for the performers. Karol Szymanowski’s two string quartets are true gems, world-class masterpieces of the genre. 

Like light focused in a lens, Szymanowski’s quartets concentrate within themselves the essence of his musical language, his style, and his emotionality. To perform them convincingly, one needs perfect workmanship and wide cultural horizons. Yet, the Karol Szymanowski Competition does not look for convincing performers. It looks for arch-masters. 

The Szymanowski Competition is held every 5 years in 4 performance categories: piano, violin, string quartet and voice. The fifth, special category is the composition competition, which takes place a year before the performance competition, during which the winning works will be performed.  

This event is an opportunity for outstanding young artists. A chance to give their careers momentum and pace. A chance to become an artist recognized to the world. And also, to win a high prize. The prize pool is close to €300,000! 

Admission to the competition auditions is free. Auditions are held from 10:30-12:00 at the NOSPR Chamber Hall.

Online booking via the link below is mandatory:
