From 6 – 22 November 2015, the sixth edition of the YPF Piano Competition will take place. All pianists aged 25 and under are allowed to participate.
The competition is structured in three categories, depending on age . The winner of each category gets to play in the YPF Piano Competition grande final, where they will perform a set piece and a piano concert of choice. If the jury deems the performance extraordinary, they might award the Grand Prix Youri Egorov. This prize includes a performance with the Mariinsky Orchestra, conducted by Valery Gergiev.
Please note: in the present edition of the YPF Piano Competition, a large scale of chamber music work is included in the repertoire of the semi final. The selected pianists will perform with chamber music ensembles consisting of MA students of the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
This year, there will be again a Junior Competition for young pianists up to and including 12 years, with just two rounds. A perfect way to acclimatise to competitions, with lovely educational prizes.
