JUNIOR FINALE YPF PIANO COMPETITION
Test of the very youngest (up to 14 years)

Mozart proved it a long time ago: talent emerges at a young age. That is why the Young Pianist Foundation organizes the YPF Junior Competition in addition to the regular competition. Here the very young get a platform to compete for an experienced jury. Discover the talents of the future and follow them in their first steps to the top.

The YPF Junior Competition is a stepping stone to the ‘real’ competition and is, in terms of repertoire; relatively complicated. In the first round the young pianists are tested on their classical piano repertoire.  They conclude the finals with a piano concerto by Mozart that the young talents play together with a string quartet, consisting of students from the Conservatorium of Amsterdam.

Sun 10 February 2019 / 14:15 tot +/- 18:00 / Great Hall
FINALE YPF PIANO COMPETITION 2019
The three best pianists in the Netherlands (up to 28 years)

The three finalists conclude the heavy competition with a world premiere for piano solo by the young Dutch composer and pianist Thomas Beijer and Chopins   Second piano concerto . The orchestra of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam accompanies the finalists under direction of Jean-Bernard Pommier.

During the jury meeting, Ramon van Engelenhoven (winner of the YPF Piano Competition 2015), will perform Symphonic variations   by Franck. The award ceremony will take place immediately after the jury meeting.
