The Melk Abbey International Baroque Festival’s commitment to promoting the coming generation of artists is entering its next phase. In addition to concerts in which rising talents are given a platform, this year the triannual Johann Heinrich Schmelzer Competition take place once again. It attracts participants from near and far who want to pit their musical skills against each other.

Two selection rounds are followed by the finalists’ concert in which the audience can make up its own mind about the young musicians’ abilities. A generous prize donated by Capital Bank awaits the winner. And, as three years ago, listeners have the opportunity to cast their votes as part of the jury for the bursary award.
