András Schiff presents young pianists

András Schiff ‘s concern is to support young pianists apart from the established competitions. Each season he chooses three young talents and invites them to play in one hour-recitals in front of interested piano music lovers as well as a deliberately chosen professional audience - artists‘ agents, representatives of the record industry and fellow musicians.

The invited pianists have finished their studies and have normally taken part in various prestigious competitions. But still they are just starting their professional careers and need prudent and sustainable support to shape their future successfully. Through András Schiff engagement they receive the opportunity to establish and extend contacts to the professional musical world.

The repertoire of their concerts is planned by András Schiff according to the individual artistic and interpretive character of the musicians on the one hand. On the other hand the programs are being put into the context of a concert series. This concert series is presented by various promoters in Europe and America. Thus a musical platform shall be established where young musicians can develop their own professional network in an exclusive setting.

Together with KD211:musique in Berlin, following promoters have joined the idea to present these pianists in their cities:
