The International Bach Competition takes place every two years. Bach's masterpieces are interpreted musically by talented young people. Bach's work is the focus of attention, but the repertoire goes beyond that. The younger set meets this challenging task head-on. As jurors, world-renowned musicians are dedicated to passing on their experience to the younger generation. The competition takes place in three alternating subjects: piano, harpsichord, violin/baroque violin or organ, voice, violoncello/baroque violoncello.
