International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition, Würzburg
Nov 17, 1992
Every three years
The competition is open to pianists of all nationalities who are not older than 36 at the time of the competition. The program consists exclusively of the original keyboard works of J. S. Bach. The competition aims to encourage competitors to demonstrate stylistically well-developed Bach interpretations on the piano, study Bach’s works, and to encounter different interpretations of those works.
The competition consists of 4 rounds: Preliminary, Quarter-Final, Semi-Final and Final. Both “live” rounds are held in the Festsaal of Saarbrücker Schloß (Castle of Saarbrücken, Germany). Videos from two online rounds will be downloaded and available to the public on our YouTube channel.
