International Marimba Competition
International Percussion Competition
Concerts and Festivals
After taking place twice in Salzburg, the International Marimba Competition returns in 2015 to its roots in Linz, the site of the hugely successful first edition.
The heart of the competition, the jury, will remain the same, but the place where it all happens will be completely new: the just completed building of the Anton Bruckner Private University. Bogdan Bacanu remains as the Artistic Director and Robert van Sice is now responsible for the repertoire list. Leonard Schmidinger, solo timpanist at the Bruckner Orchestra Linz as well as professor at the University, will be the President of the Jury.
Newly announced is the International Percussion competition, to be held for the first time in 2018. Focusing on multiple percussion, the new competition will alternate with the Marimba edition, with one of the competitions being held every three years.
In addition, Percussive Linz will host every year Concerts and Festivals, giving young musicians the chance to perform solo and together with renown percussionists.
