The Birmingham International Piano Competition is committed to the art of the piano recital, and provides young pianists aged 18-28 the chance to further their careers and perform in world-class venues.
Three outstanding pianists will make it to the final, during which they will perform a recital in an intimate atmosphere created by ‘in the round’ seating.
