In celebration of the Chopin Bicentennial, this competition presents today's most promising young pianists, selected from the finest conservatories and music schools, in performances of Chopin's best-known études, ballades, mazurkas, polonaises, préludes and waltzes. Join the panel of distinguished international judges, including Ewa Kupiec, Benjamin Hochman, Philip Kennicott, and Daniel Epstein, and be part of the decision-making process for the Grand prize - a 2011 recital at Symphony Space in New York and a weeklong trip to Poland for an international debut recital in Warsaw.
Following the competition please join us at 8:00 pm for a singular Chopin Recital. Anne-Marie McDermott offers her only New York solo performance of select Chopin piano music, and is also joined by the compelling young mezzo-soprano Marta Wryk and renowned international cellist Rafal Jezierski for a lyrical and passionate set of cello-piano works and rarely performed songs.
