The Robert Schumann International Competition for Pianists and Singers was constituted in 1956 in East Berlin within the framework of the commemorations on the 100th anniversary of Robert Schumann's death. A second edition was organized on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth, and three years later a third edition was arranged in Zwickau, his birthplace.[1] The competition, a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions,[2] has taken place in Zwickau every 3 or 4 years since.[3]
