PREFACE TO THE FS&MM 2018
The International Competition Franz Schubert and Modern Music is a chamber music competition, which was first given form by the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in 1989 and has since been held at three-year intervals. The 10th edition of this competition will take place from February 19-28, 2018 and will again take up the challenge of giving you, as young musicians, the opportunity to assess your skills on your way from training to professional life while at the same time being confronted with the reality of a highly competitive profession.
Future-oriented and with the aim of preparing competitors for their professional future, we are looking for creative, imaginative and curious personalities, who are able to perform at the highest level and to reach and touch their listeners in many different ways through their ensemble playing in chamber music. For this endeavour, the Executive Committee of the competition will invite top-class and internationally renowned jury members who will take up the challenge of making these competition days become an important milestone in your career by giving you their undivided attention and qualified feedback. After all, our competition should not only produce worthy winners, but at the same time provide an important stimulus for the artistic development of all competitors. This includes, not least of all, a valuable exchange of experience with the other participants.

and 27/02/2018 (finals)
