II Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition

The human soul expresses itself most directly through singing. While singing Szymanowski, one may touch upon the mysticism of the East, get lost in the mist of Młoda Polska poetry, stand against the spiritual titans of Modernism, wander among the rhymes of Tuwim’s Słopiewnie, as well as lose oneself in King Roger’s dilemmas and Roxanne’s sensual charm.  

Karol Szymanowski’s sister, Stanisława, was a singer herself. It is singing that his music breathes with. We seek singers who will find a common breath with Karol Szymanowski. 

The Szymanowski Competition is held every 5 years in 4 performance categories: piano, violin, string quartet and voice. The fifth, special category is the composition competition, which takes place a year before the performance competition, during which the winning works will be performed.  

This event is an opportunity for outstanding young artists. A chance to give their careers momentum and pace. A chance to become an artist recognized to the world. And also, to win a high prize. The prize pool is close to €300,000! 

Admission to the competition auditions is free. Auditions are held from 10:00-12:40 at the Concert Hall at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice. Online booking via the link below is mandatory:
