Classic on Danube
In April 2023, CMDI is organizing the third edition of the Classic on Danube International Piano Competition, with talented pianists from around the world competing in the Austrian capital of Vienna from the 11th to the 14th of the month.
Held over two rounds and featuring an eclectic choice of repertoire including a piece by Composer-In-Residence Alexey Shor, the event promises to be an engaging and varied competition with virtuosic performances from upcoming young artists. The participants' performances will be judged over by a five-person jury board that has been specially hand-picked to preside over this occasion, featuring some of the most respected and experienced pianists and pedagogues active today. These include among them Nareh Arghamanyan (Armenia/Austria), Alan Chircop (Malta), Pavel Gililov (Germany/Austria), Jura Margulis (Austria), and Giuliano Mazzoccante (Italy).
There will be a total prize fund of €18,000 awaiting the most accomplished pianists. In addition, this iteration of Classic on Danube also forms part of the '14 Ways to Dubai' initiative, a large-scale international endeavor which consists of 14 preliminary piano competitions held in 14 different countries around the world. This means that the top-five-ranked Classic on Danube participants will also win the right to participate in the 2024 Classic Piano International Competition, which will be held in Dubai as part of the acclaimed InClassica International Music Festival, with a further €250,000 worth of prizes to be shared among the award-winners there.
