Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition is an opportunity for outstanding young artists. An opportunity to broaden the scope and increase the momentum of their career. An opportunity to get international recognition and to win a great prize.
The competition takes place every five years in four performing disciplines: piano, violin, string quartet and voice. The fifth, special category is the composing competition, taking place a year ahead of the performing competition.
The first edition of the competition took place in 2018 and it was a truly pioneering event. The initiators were Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa, then director of NOSPR, and the authorities of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice.
The competition is organised by the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice, in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport; the City of Katowice; Polish Radio; Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice; and the Karol Szymanowski Music Society in Zakopane. The Strategic Partner of the competition is Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne PWM.
Next edition will be held on 2023.
