2nd round:


Welcome to
the International J.M. Sperger Competition

The International J.M. Sperger Competition offers an extraordinary and motivational experience to young double bassists. The challenge of competing artistically on an international level is combined with concerts and masterclasses by the top-level jury. The International J.M. Sperger Society host the competition biennially.

"all you need is bass..."

Over the past decades, the works of Johann Matthias Sperger have become an important benchmark in the education of young double bassists, as well as on concert podiums. I am very pleased that the International J.M. Sperger Competition carries the memory and appreciation of this composer around the world, and attracts and enchants so many musicians. I wish all participants much joy, a lively exchange of ideas, and fair play in competiton.

Christine Hoock
Artistic Director of the International J.M. Sperger Competition
