Henle Piano Competition

 

We were able to see and hear the enthusiasm with which 651 young pianists from 32 different countries participated in the Henle Piano Competition. That is by far the largest number of contestants the competition ever reached in its eleven year history. The young musicians played a piece by Robert Schumann.

We would like to thank all the girls and boys for their dedicated contributions that truly pleased us. The jury came together recently to watch, listen, discuss – and finally to make their decisions. Here are the winners:
