2011 Bösendorfer Piano Competition

2011 Bösendorfer Piano Competition

In 1889 Ludwig Bösendorfer, ingenious son of company founder Ignaz Bösendorfer, initiated the "Bösendorfer Piano Competition" in order to promote young talents and students. Down to the present day this competition remains extremly popular with young artists and professional circles. The 2011 competition (new edition) is open now.

In its long tradition, the competition has been won by such well-known pianists as  Alexander von Zemlinsky, Alexander Jenner, Walter Klien, Hans Petermandl, Ivan Eröd, Rudolf Buchbinder, Doris Adam or Christoph Berner. In 2011 the winner - decided by the prominent jury - will receive a voucher from Bösendorfer to the value of 17.000 €

Ludwig Bösendorfer was deeply committed to supporting young musicians.
