»The task of a pianist is diverse and includes an exact knowledge of the compositions, the composers, the period and the musical language. Most importantly it includes the deep understanding of one’s self and the boundless vastness, which is slumbering in all of us and composers have wonderfully expressed across all boundaries of time.«
»I am pleased that the International Piano Forum contributes with its name and network to the growing success of its excellent piano talents.
Despite countless other piano competitions, something has never existed before: the International German Piano Award. Thus, the International German Piano Award earns unlimited gratitude of top German and international piano talents.«
