From 2009 onwards, the first round of the contest is organized in Bayreuth, Liszt’s place of death. As a tradition, finalists will perform his two piano concerti in front of a knowledgeable jury composed of established pianists and professors. Former jury members include Károly Mocsári and Michel Béroff. Special prize will be awarded for the best interpretation of a Franz Liszt composition. Winners are guaranteed with future concert engagements with professional orchestras such as the Staatskapelle Weimar and Jena Philharmonic Orchestra.
