This Competition recognises the song tradition as a a whole and requires contestants to perform in at least three languages. At the same time it honours the Lied's place at the heart of the song repertoire and celebrates the Shakespearean stature of Schubert in the genre.

Four singers will each give a recital of 30 minutes

Interval Supper
