Facing the future
From pioneering avant-garde works to scores whose ink has hardly dried, the Concours Nicati offers great musical diversity. It encourages young musicians at the beginning of their career to translate bold, complex, enigmatic, recalcitrant and subtle texts into immersive sound experiences. Seen in this light, the competition is in keeping with previous editions, and yet resolutely faces the future. In late August 2019, the competition will for the first-ever time become a polymorphic site of never-before-explored performances – because creativity is at the root of our cultural life. It is the source without which nothing thrives. Whether in the established category «Interpretation» or in the brand new category «Open space», taking part is (almost) everything! Not only has our artistic profile been expanded, but the conditions for participation have also been revised. And last but not least, the competition will conquer new venues. Registration is open until 30 April 2019.
For the ninth time, the Concours Nicati is inviting young musicians to present concerts featuring works of contemporary music.Find out more

Candidates are invited to present performative projects that differ from the concert format as admitted in the category «Interpretation».Find out more
