We proudly announce that from 6 – 22 November 2015, the sixth edition of the YPF Piano Competition will take place at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam. The competition is open to pianists up to and including 25 years.

The competition has three age categories and four rounds. In the semi finals, the jury will designate the winner of each category. The three winners of the three categories will compete in the final with a set piece and piano concerto of their choice. In the final, the jury will designate the winner of the YPF Piano Competition. The jury may decide to award the Grand Prix Youri Egorov.

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.
