“The Honens International Piano Competition, based in Canada, prides itself on awarding accomplished pianists who are complete musicians. This may seem a lofty claim, but the Honens has a long list of thoughtful awardees to back it up.”—The New York Times
In the tenth edition of the Honens International Piano Competition, ten pianists will advance from Quarterfinals in Frankfurt and New York to come to Calgary to compete in the Semifinals. Three pianists will advance to the Finals to compete for one of the world’s largest and most respected prizes in classical piano—$100,000 CAD and a comprehensive, three-year artistic and career development program.
