Program notes

Following two years of preliminary contests held in the USA, France, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Kazakhstan, Poland, the UK, Armenia, China, South Korea, Japan, Israel, and Spain, the top artists from each have convened in Dubai with their eyes on the top prize at the third edition of the prestigious Classic Piano International Competition! Following their third-round performances of Shor and Mozart, our talented finalists will once again have the opportunity to perform with the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sergey Smbatyan, this time in a piano concerto of their choice from a list of favorites by Beethoven, Chopin, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, and Liszt. The winner will take home €50,000 and embark on a ten-concert tour—tune in to find out which of these young artists will rise to the challenge!
