HINWEIS COVID-19  – 10. Internationaler Deutscher Pianistenpreis 2020

Liebe Freundinnen und Freunde der klassischen Klaviermusik –

Nur gemeinsam können wir die Kulturlandschaft in dieser ausweglosen Situation unterstützen. Die globale Pandemie macht auch vor Künstlerinnen und Künstlern nicht halt. Sie erfahren die Auswirkungen mit voller Wucht. Insbesondere mental und finanziell müssen sie große Einbüßen verzeichnen. Aus diesem Grund bitten wir Sie, dass Ihre bereits erworbenen Eintrittskarten für die Konzerte anlässlich des 10. Internationalen Deutschen Pianistenpreises in der Alten Oper Frankfurt und im Literaturhaus Frankfurt erst dann erstattet werden, falls die Konzerte am 13., 14. und 15. Dezember erneut wegen Covid-19 weiterhin verschoben werden müssen.

Somit helfen Sie uns in der Realisierung und Unterstützung dieses Förderpreises, die alle beteiligten Künstlerinnen und Künstler zugutekommt.

Herzlichen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung und bleiben Sie bis dahin gesund!
Ihr International Piano Forum Frankfurt

NOTE COVID-19 – 10th International German Piano Award 2020


Dear friends of classical piano music,

Only together can we support the cultural landscape in which it is currently: a hopeless situation for everyone involved. The global pandemic does not even make exceptions for artists. They experience the consequences with full impact. In particular, they are suffering from financial losses. For this reason, we would ask you to kindly understand that the tickets you have already purchased for the concerts in the Alte Oper Frankfurt and Literaturhaus Frankfurt, will only be refunded if the concerts on 13, 14 and 15 December have to be postponed again due to the risk of infection with Covid-19.

Thus, you will help us to support the International Gemran Piano Award 2020, which will benefit all the artists involved.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. Until then, stay healthy!
