»Das Lied« 2021 – CANCELED
The competition, which had been postponed to May 25-29, 2021, has to be canceled entirely due to the pandemic. Against the background of the current developments, we cannot guarantee the fairness of the competition and a safe environment for the participants, who come from all over the world. The competition is held every two years and therefore takes place the next time in 2023, much likely including this year’s repertoire of songs by Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann and Aribert Reimann. Together with Thomas Quasthoff, founder and jury chairman of the competition, it was decided that this year’s contestant can apply in 2023 even if they have reached the age limit of 32 years. This year’s registration fee will be fully refunded.
