The “International Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Competition” organised by the University of Music in Vienna has been held ever since 2001. An eminent international jury elects the participants.
As a tribute to Haydn – the composer of genius – on the bicentenary of his death, the competition is being held a year early instead of retaining the triennial interval.
The 4th competition took place in Vienna from 15 to 23 April 2009, and the grand finale will be the galaconcert on friday, april 24 at Schloss Esterházy (Haydnsaal), Eisenstadt at 7.30 pm played by the prizewinners, organised by the Esterházy Private Foundation .
A novelty of this year’s anniversary competition will be the presentation of new compositions by the composition classes of the University of Music and the Performing Arts.
the audience’s prize ( € 4.000,-) was won by the polish-german “Berolina Trio”
