Liszt Utrecht actively presents, develops and promotes piano talents from around the world. And by doing so it has become one of the prominent gateways to the international professional classical music scene for young musicians.
Starting point is the triennial International Liszt Competition, held at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht, The Netherlands. The Competition was founded in 1986 and since has built a reputation as one of the world’s most prestigious piano competitions. As of the edition in 2022 the competition has a new structure in place, which focuses less on the competing part and gives more opportunities to the participating pianists to showcase their artistry to an international audience.
