Competition 2020

We are sad to announce that the 12th edition of the Liszt Competition Utrecht needs to be postponed once more. We had high hopes in March that the competition could take place in July, but the reality is that with the current restrictions on cultural events and the limitations on international travel it is still impossible.

We are still very committed to offer the selected pianists a chance to present the result of their hard work and will host a competition from 16 till 22 November 2020. We will be sharing more details on this event as soon as possible.

Ticket holders will be informed by TivoliVredenburg soon.
