Combattimento musicale

Public finalists’ concert for the 10th International Johann Heinrich Schmelzer Competition

Saturday 22 May | TEATIME | Melk Abbey / Barockkeller


Michi Gaigg, chairperson
Michael Schade, voice
Rainer Trost, voice
Johaness Weiss, string instruments
Claire Genewein, wind instruments
Anne Marie Dragosits, keyboard instruments                                  

The first round was completed in spring 2020 and the participants selected for the prelude in Melk. But for that we had to show a little more patience. Because of the measures taken to stop the spread of Covid-19, the plan to hold the next stage of the competition at the Baroque Festival 2020 had to be postponed, and now in the following year we’re catching up.

Which makes the tension all the greater on Saturday afternoon at the start of 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 listeners are called upon to cast their votes as part of the jury for the bursary award.


Price: €25 Youth prices: <26: €15
