The background of the FS&MM

The International Competition "Franz Schubert and Modern Music" (FS&MM) is a chamber music competition founded by the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in 1989. Since then it has been offered every three years and brings young musicians from all over the world to Graz. The audience can enjoy a multi-day festival of chamber music - with free admission.

Right from the start, it was about bringing Schubert's chamber music into relation with new and newest works for suitable ensembles. In addition, the expansion of the chamber music repertoire with compositional competitions and commissioned works is actively pursued.

The International Competition "Franz Schubert and Modern Music" is a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions and the Alink-Argerich-Foundation.
