The International Competition Musica Antiqua is also being affected by the winds of change. The numerous laureates who have gone on to establish international careers testify to the importance of the competition as a powerful springboard for promising baroque soloists. To further strengthen this worldwide reputation, in 2020 it is to be rechristened the MA Competition.

The MA Competition 2020 for melodic instruments is postponed. We regret this of course, but public health is now of paramount importance. The safety of the numerous (international) musicians, festival visitors, Friends, patrons, partners and staff must take priority.

The MA Competition 2021 for melodic instruments will take place from 7 August to 14 August 2021.

All those involved will be contacted personally.
