The first two rounds are for solo and piano-accompanied violin (Paganini, Mozart, Bach and NZ commission Jack Body) and are held in Queenstown. Following which, the entire Competition shifts up the country to Auckland and the top 6 perform complete piano trios. The finals showcase the top 3 competitors performing concerti in the Auckland Town Hall.
