The great pianist Géza Anda died in Zurich in 1976, and two years later his widow Hortense Anda-Bührle founded the Géza Anda Foundation, which held its first Concours in 1979. It is still a special competition today, because the young pianists not only compete in various rounds; those who win the final also receive numerous performance opportunities in addition to prize money for three years. The repertoire of the competition is based on that with which Géza Anda once became famous. And he may also have set the bar in terms of artistic attitude: A pianist must become one with a work, he once wrote, "one should embrace and absorb the work like a scorpion. Which works it will be this time: That has yet to be decided.
