The sale of tickets for the third, final round of the competition, which will take place on Sunday 12 June at 3 pm in the House of Culture of the City of Ostrava, have begun. Tickets can be purchased at Janáček Filharmonic Ostrava, in the Ostrava Information Centers or in the House of Culture of the City of Ostrava.
The 58th Beethoven's Hradec International Competition will take place in nearby towns of Opava and Ostrava due to a large reconstruction of Hradec nad Moravicí castle. First and second round will be held in The hall of Minorit Monastery in Opava. The final round will take place in Ostrava House of Culture, the residence place of Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava.
We recommend to contestans to secure an accommodation in the town Opava. There are many hotels and pensions. The transport to Ostrava will be secured for the finalists. Information about Opava town are on website of the tourist information centre.
We believe that the Minorit Monastery and Ostrava House of Culture will serve the contestants well. The town of Opava is, same as Hradec nad Moravicí castle, connected with Ludwig van Beethoven. It was just the town of Opava where Beethoven left to when he had an agrument with the prince Lichnovsky. And again it was Opava where Beethoven took part in performance of his Messe C-dur, op. 86 in 1811 in the Church of Holy Spirit.
The 58th Beethoven's Hradec International Music competition is announced for 2022. The competition, in category piano, will take place on 8-12 June, 2022, in the Hradec nad Moravicí Castle.
Applicants will fill in the application online (until 10th April 2023), which includes a photo and a confirmation of payment of entry fee. The deadline for submitting application forms is 18 April, 2022.. All candidates accepted to the competition will be sent further information to the email addresses specified in their application forms by 25 April 2022. The competition is limited to 45 participants; any applications exceeding this number will not be accepted.
The competition is open to artists aged 32 or less.
All required information are in the proposition avaible for downloading or on this page.
58th year of a competition, which should have taken place in June 2020, won't take place until 2022 because of the unfavourable and unpredictible situation of Covid's pandemic. Organizers have decided to stop all preparations for the prestige competition Beethoven's Hradec as it wouldn't be possible to carry it out on the expected international level.
Dear young pianists, dear colleagues,
I would like to add a few words to the news about postponing the Beethoven’s piano competition in Hradec nad Moravicí for the second time. The organizer has told you about reasons for delaying the competition, certainly they are obvious as they are connected with a huge uncertainty in options for production of cultural, formal or educational activities in the nearest months. We hoped that we could get back to normality, to standard activities after the first wave of pandemic, but it didn’t happen. I know in what difficulties you are working now and understand that a preparation for an international competition could be one of a few motivating moments of these days. If you were looking forward to Hradec nad Moravicí and worked on the competition’s program, believe me, it wasn’t a wasted time. On the other hand, everything you’ve learned during the preparation, will be certainly useful and it will move you on in your piano development. Keep your favor to the competition. I strongly believe we will meet in June 2022.
Eliška Novotná, Chairwoman
