About the organiser

This piano competition was conceived by local Kagawans with a passion for music and a dream of creating an event that would inspire young musicians seeking careers on the international stage. To realize this dream, a committee of like-minded people was formed in 2003, and the first Takamatsu International Piano Competition was held in March 2006. This was followed by the second competition in March 2010 and the third in March 2014. Kagawa prefecture has one of the highest rates of enrollment in

To realize this dream, a committee of like-minded people was formed in 2003, and the first Takamatsu International Piano Competition was held in March 2006. This was followed by the second competition in March 2010 and the third in March 2014. Kagawa prefecture has one of the highest rates of enrollment in university-level music programs in the country.

This, coupled with the high piano penetration rate, demonstrates the local passion for music education. The hosting of a regular international piano competition that gathers outstanding musicians from around the world cannot fail to inspire the local people and particularly the younger generations.
