About the competition

We help young pianists advance their musical career and get recognized

The International Piano Competition for Young Musicians is held every 2 years in Enschede. This is the only international competition for young pianists in the Netherlands. Participation is open to pianists between the ages of 10 and 20.

The International Piano Festival, held in the years, between competitions, organizes workshops and masterclasses, given by prominent pianists and teachers. The Competition makes it possible for its Prize winners to play solo recitals in the Netherlands and perform with an orchestra.
