International Franz Liszt Piano Competition

The International Franz Liszt Piano Competition ("Liszt Competition"), a member of WFIMC, is an international piano competition.

The Competition is held in Utrecht in the Netherlands. It first took place in 1986, one hundred years after the death of Franz Liszt. The piano competition was well received from the outset by both concert audiences and the music press, and the resoundingly positive response to the first competition was a great incentive to continue. The success of the subsequent competitions made it very clear that there was no going back: the Liszt Competition had taken its place on the world stage of international piano competitions, and each of the seven subsequent competitions has only made the position of the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition more secure.

Since the first time the Liszt Competition was held it has had the privilege of welcoming over two hundred selected participants of extremely high calibre from all over the world.

Famous quotes containing the words competition and/or piano:

    Knowledge in the form of an informational commodity indispensable to productive power is already, and will continue to be, a major—perhaps the major—stake in the worldwide competition for power. It is conceivable that the nation-states will one day fight for control of information, just as they battled in the past for control over territory, and afterwards for control over access to and exploitation of raw materials and cheap labor.
    Jean François Lyotard (b. 1924)

    It is not always possible to predict the response of a doting Jewish mother. Witness the occasion on which the late piano virtuoso Oscar Levant telephoned his mother with some important news. He had proposed to his beloved and been accepted. Replied Mother Levant: “Good, Oscar, I’m happy to hear it. But did you practice today?”
