Busoni International Piano Competition

Musicians from all over the world competing in the city of Bolzano

It was in 1949 that Cesare Nordio, former director of the Claudio Monteverdi Music Academy, hosted the Busoni International Piano Competition for the first time. This was the year when whole Italy celebrated the 25th anniversary of Busoni's death. The competition has become a major event of world-wide fame, just the way it was meant to be.

Every two years numerous musicians unite in Bolzano to take part or at least witness the outstanding event. An international jury of experts judges the up-and-coming talents, elects a number of finalists and finally chooses a praiseworthy winner. On the same time some fascinating public concerts are held in the local town theatre. When? Every two years between end of August and mid of September.
