International Piano Forum

Under the Patronage
of Valery Gergiev and Lars Vogt

“The good true and beautiful” – the International Piano Forum has taken this maxim from Goethe to heart. Founded in 2008 by friends and supporters of classical piano music, it offers outstanding young national and international artistic personalities a platform accompanying them on their way to an international career. The International Piano Forum has the aim to promote excellent and exceptional talents.

»To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable!«

v. Beethoven
