Bartók World Competition

17 works were sent to the international jury

23 September 2022

"We have found some truly excellent works among the entries, and we are confident that the international jury will also rate them highly," said Gyula Fekete, artistic director of the composers' round of the competition and chairman of the pre-selection jury, as well as vice-president of Liszt Academy. He confirmed that the members of this jury were delighted to have encountered a wide range of styles and compositional techniques among the works. In addition to Gyula Fekete, composers Máté Bella, Gergely Barta and Péter Tornyai, teachers at the Liszt Academy, received the 98 entries - sheet music, sound material and a short presentation of each work, via an electronic link. At the pre-selection meeting on 15 September, the works were evaluated by scoring and then 17 selected works were sent to the acclaimed international jury. As the competition remains anonymous, the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music will only publish  pseudonyms chosen by composers themselves.
