International Piano Festival

Dear students, pianists, music lovers!

The Clavicologne NRW - International Piano Festival and Competition will be held from 4th to 11th of March of 2018 at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln/Aachen and I sincerely would like to welcome you on behalf of the whole team! Internationally recognized professors offer the young pianists an opportunity to participate in the master classes and to deepen their repertoire, to get new important pianistic experience and to present them to the public at one of the Academy’s concerts.
In addition, Clavicologne International Piano Competition in 3 age groups will take place after the master classes, where the participants will present themselves to an internationally renowned jury. The best 5 participants, in the adult category, where the participants perform one piece by contemporary Maltese composer - Alexey Shor, Joseph Vella or Karl Fiorini, will be selected from the competition and shall be offered free accommodation and participation in the Malta International Music Festival 2018 with an impressive prize fund of 200,000 euros.

My thanks go to the European Foundation for Support for Culture and the Cologne University of Music and Dance!

I wish Clavicologne NRW - International Piano Festival and Competition 2018 a great success!
