Online application for the YPF European Piano Competition 2025 / Grand Prix Youri Egorov is now open; are you a classically trained pianist under 28 years and ready for your ‘next step’, then apply now! We will warmly welcome you in Amsterdam where you have the chance to meet (and compete) with your European peers in front of a highly regarded international jury.

Eight times the YPF has created an important and inspiring stage for young talents to shine, and for exciting careers to be launched. Known for its impressive panel of international jury members and for the variety and difficulty of the required repertoire, your participation in the YPF European Piano Competition could be a very useful stimulus and a stepping stone towards the major competitions, such as the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels.

Ramon van Engelenhoven, winner of the first prize and Grand Prix Youri Egorov 2015, commented: “The competition was a national event, but in terms of repertoire more difficult than many international piano competitions. And the international jury makes it so educational, not to mention the prospect of performing under Valery Gergiev. What other competition gives you such an opportunity?” 

We look forward to receiving your application!

On behalf of the Team of the Young Pianist Foundation,

Thomas Beijer, Artistic Director

"The YPF Competition was my first big step towards the international career. It opened many doors of the important concert halls. Thanks to the competition I gained the experience, knowledge and discovered artistic freedom, it gave me a chance to understand my goals as a musician.
Dreams can come true and the YPF Competition is helping pianists to reach them!"
