We find it important to develop and promote young Dutch piano talent. During Liszt Utrecht 2022 we therefore offer five upcoming Dutch pianists the possibility to gain experience and develop themselves within the structure of an international piano competition. 
All five young pianists each give one performance during the festival phase. These ‘NLiszt’ concerts form a small, separate piano competition on their own. The international jury is present during these concerts and select a winner by the end of the festival phase. This winner receives the ‘Henk de By’ award of €2500 and will perform with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra during the Grand Finale of Liszt Utrecht!
