VIENNA – Welcome to the final concert of this year’s prize winners of the International FEURICH Competition on 1 July 2019 in the historical Vienna Ehrbar Hall!
The International FEURICH Competition for Piano, Voice, and Chamber Music offers young musicians from all backgrounds an opportunity to present their talent in the heart of Vienna, a city renowned the world over for its rich musical heritage. The competition takes place for the 4th time and focuses not just on technical skills, but also on the joy of musical expression.
The jury consists of seasoned musicians and teachers from various European universities. At the award ceremony, the prize winners are awarded cash prizes, trophies, medals, and diplomas. In addition, many will be invited to participate in concerts, festivals, and competitions around Europe.
The Ehrbar Hall was constructed in 1876 by the piano manufacturer Friedrich Erhbar. The architect Julius Schrittwieser was inspired by the architectural style of the Italian High Renaissance. The venue quickly became a musical hub of the city of Vienna with its ideal acoustics. Many of the best-known musicians performed repeatedly in the Ehrbar Hall, e.g. Belá Bartók, Johannes Brahms, and Gustav Mahler.
Here is a taste of last year’s final concert and award ceremony.
