The International Schubert Fest Dortmund takes place in the years between two competitions and offers the laureates the opportunity to play with international stars of classical music.

The International Schubert-Competition Dortmund was established in 1987 and has been held since then at the heart of Ruhr area, invariably with great success. Prizes are awarded to international candidates in the categories of “Piano” and “LiedDuo”. It is aimed at young and talented musicians of the very highest professional standard and is designed to help them as they enter their chosen profession. Thanks to its programming the Schubert Competition also provides a unique opportunity to introduce participants and audiences to Schubert’s world of ideas.

The Competition additionally seeks to add to the cultural variety and attractiveness of the Ruhr area and to draw the region to national and international attention. An important role in this process is played by its high-profile venue, the atmospheric compressor hall of the Hansa Coking Plant, which is a listed building. It is a location that means that Dortmund’s International Schubert Competition is visibly anchored in a region marked by its former mining industry and by heavy industry.
