YPF Young Virtuosi Series

In 2021 the YPF launched the Young Virtuosi series for YPF laureates and top young pianists, the ‘Young Virtuosi’, in which they are given the promised opportunity through concerts and master classes to further develop their craftsmanship and bring out the best in themselves. A great success. Click here for recordings from 2021, 2022 and 2023.
