Despite the efforts of the organizers, the criteria for the implementation of the 59th Beethoven Hradec violin competition could not be met. The number of registered competitors, mainly due to the consequences and fading of the Covid-19 pandemic, did not reach an adequate number for the international level of the competition. The organizers of the competition have therefore decided to postpone the violin year to 2024 and to cancel the Beethoven Hradec competition this year.
All those registered were contacted by the organizer regarding the next procedure.
Nevertheless, this year you can enjoy the atmosphere of the Beethoven Hradec festival at the festive concert of the Piano Trio of the Czech Philharmonic, which will feature Jiří Vodička (violin), Václav Petr (cello) and Martin Kasík (piano) with a program including L. Janáček, A. Dvořák and L. van Beethoven. The concert will take place as originally scheduled on Wednesday, June 14 at 6 p.m. in the Minorite Monastery in Opava. During the week of June 12 to 16, the celebratory concert will be complemented by concerts organized by Múza and the Opava Basic Art School and interpretation courses for pedagogues.
