International Chamber Music Competition “Franz Schubert and Modern Music” (FS&MM)
The International Chamber Music Competition “Franz Schubert and Modern Music”(FS&MM) was established by the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in 1989. Since then, every three years Graz becomes a hub for young musicians from all over the world who are competing here in front of an international, high-caliber jury. The categories are: Duo for Voice and Piano (Lied), Piano Trio, and String Quartet.
FS&MM is not a competition like any other. Right from the start, it was about bringing Schubert’s chamber music into relation with both new and the latest works for the corresponding lineup. With the composition competitions as well as commissioned works the expansion of the chamber music repertoire gets actively promoted. With around € 100,000 prize money, the FS&MM is one of the highest-paying competitions.
