II Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition

Watch the live streaming:

Is it possible to imagine Karol Szymanowski’s world without the piano? Absolutely not! The piano was his confidant and inseparable companion at times of creative reveries. It was the instrument which enabled him to express himself not only as a composer, but also as a performer. 

In Tymoszówka, the Szymanowskis’ family estate, the piano was virtually a member of the family. The story of its alleged destruction – by being thrown into a pond – is at the same time a story of an end of an era, also an era in the history of music. Yet, history goes on. In the competition, we search for pianists who are able to find the meaning of Szymanowski – here and now. 

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! 

Finals are held at the Concert Hall of NOSPR.

A detailed program will be published after the finalists are selected.
