General information on practising and pianists:

  • Please, read the following lines very carefully!
  • Pörtschach is a small town. Distances are short, everything is within walking distance. The number of participants is high, though. Nevertheless, we try to offer fair and equal conditions for all candidates. It is obvious that practising possibilities, in particular during the first round, are limited.
  • In view of this fact, every candidate is only allowed 2 hours of practising per day during the first round.
  • String players are requested to practise at their accommodation, if possible. Please check with your place of accommodation!
  • Candidates who arrive earlier, can practise at the Music School (primary school building) in all practising rooms that are not reserved. No sign-up necessary. Practising pianos are available.
  • For candidates with low starting numbers, there will be some rooms reserved the evening before their performance.
  • All other candidates can put their names on the practising timetables after the drawing of the starting numbers. New practising-timetables for the following day will be put up every day between 8 and 9 p.m. Remember, not more than 2 hours per candidate per day during the first round!
  • Pianists for violin, viola, and cello candidates will be waiting after the first round to fix practising times. Pianists are free of charge!
  • There will be separate practising rooms for singers with their own pianists.
  • There is always a warming-up room at every competition venue.
  • Any further information concerning practising and rehearsal will be provided at the information event after registration when having drawn the numbers.
