Due to the corona pandemic, the XIV. Piano Competition will be postponed by one year

Due to the imponderables regarding the arrival of the international jury members and the musicians, their accommodation with host families, and the uncertainty whether the competition could have taken place with an audience and with an orchestra in the final round, the competition in the category of Piano can’t take place this year.

“The Schubert competition will not be canceled, it will be postponed to the next year and we are very happy to have our sponsors and partners at our side in this situation. We are infinitely grateful for that” chairman Stefan Heucke said.

The international Schubert competition in the category of Piano will now take place from September 24th to October 3rd, 2021 in Dortmund and the award-winning concert on October 3rd, 2021 as usual in the compressor hall of the Hansa coking plant.
