Concurso Internacional de Piano Arthur Rubinstein (Historia)


2023 marks the 17th edition of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, named in honor of one of the 20th century’s greatest pianists and founded by one of his friends, Jan Jacob Bistritzky, in 1974. Taking place every three years in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, the competition aims to discover talented young pianists. During its nearly 50-year history, it has become one of the world’s most influential piano competitions, and includes among its past prizewinners some of today’s most important artists, from Emanuel Ax, who won the very first competition, to Kirill Gerstein (who won in 2001) and Daniil Trifonov, the 2011 winner.
