Every three years Berlin’s Universität der Künste (University of the Arts) holds the International Max Rostal Competition, established in 1991 by the eponymous violinist and teacher himself. Unlike many a conventional competition, it gives young artists an opportunity to demonstrate various facets of their musical proficiency in a demanding programme. Under the artistic direction of Hartmut Rohde, the 2009 competitions for violin and viola will be held concurrently for the first time since the competition began.
