The 1st official round of the 11th International Chamber Music Competition "Franz Schubert and Modern Music" (FS&MM) took place online in February due to the pandemic. On February 11, the top-class jury selected the semifinalists from the videos produced especially for the competition in the two categories "Duo for Voice and Piano (Lied)" and "Trio for Piano, Violin & Violoncello". The semifinalists will meet in the semifinal and final rounds at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz from July 20 - 24, 2022 to celebrate a Summer Chamber Music Festival, together with the jury and then (hopefully) with the audience.

NEW FORMATS prize winners

We are also pleased to announce the winners of the NEW FORMATS project prize: The award-winning London piano trio, Trio Paddington, wins this special prize for innovative concert formats. The aim is to open up new perspectives on the artistic content of the competition - i.e. chamber music - to the audience and to make this music accessible to people. With their concept, they take the audience on a musical journey through the medium of film - inspired by gems of Finnish folk music, the painter, composer and philosopher Erkki Melartin (1875-1937), the designs of Marimekko and the puppet theatre based on the illustrations of the popular author and illustrator Tove Jansson.
