Los Angeles International Liszt Competition for Piano and Voice

Invitation to Participate

The 2018 Los Angeles International Liszt Competition will take place on November 17-18, 2018 at Azusa Pacific University (901 East Alosta Avenue, Azusa CA 91702) and Trinity United Methodist Church (676 North Gibbs Street, Pomona CA 91767). Since the inception in 1990, the prestige of this competition has increased tremendously, and we invite you to participate. Our distinguished jury of fourteen Liszt performers and scholars represents ten states and four countries.

The Grand Prize winners in piano and voice will be given generous cash prizes and all-expense paid trips to make their debut concerts in New York City, Washington, D.C., London and in Budapest at the Liszt Memorial Museum.

The five place winners in all divisions will receive cash awards, plaques and Liszt CDs. In addition, every participant receives a Portrait of Liszt and a volume of Alan Walker’s Liszt biography.

Please note that this competition is unique in the world – the only competition to feature Liszt’s wonderful songs and the only Liszt competition to provide a category for the “Wunderkinder” ages 12 and under to perform the demanding music of Liszt.

Since this competition does not use State or Federal endorsements, it is sponsored solely by private funds and organizations, and the administrative work is provided by volunteers.

Every competition costs around $55,000. We would appreciate your heartfelt consideration to join us. Here is how you CAN BE a part of this wonderful celebration of Liszt’s music. All donors will be listed in the weekend program.

$500 - $10,000 Commandeur Liszt
$150 - $499 Abbé Liszt
$100 - $149 Franzi
$10 - $99 Le petit Litz
