Festival Description

Since autumn 1995, an international festival has taken place in Sibiu-Hermannstadt, Romania. This festival is a competition for piano and composition, which was created for young pianists and composers in memory of an extraordinary musician from Transsylvania. Carl Filtsch, born in 1830 in Sebes, Mühlbach near Sibiu-Hermannstadt, was one of the most important pianists of the 19th century. The festival is also unique in that it organises numerous concerts for the winners in addition to the concert schedule (comprising piano and chamber music recitals) which accompanies the competition. These concerts enable extraordinary talents to perform within Romania and abroad, both as soloists and with various Rumanian symphony orchestras.
