Dublin International Piano Competition

The Competition will take place in Dublin from 4th May to 15th May 2012.

The Competition will be in four rounds.

The Dublin International Piano Competition gratefully acknowledges the support of the  Radio Telefís Éireann Authority

About the DIPC: The Dublin International Piano Competition was established in 1988. A triennial event, it was sponsored for the first three competitions by GPA. In 1994, the sponsorship was taken over by Guardian Insurance and when AXA acquired the company in 1999 they also took over title sponsorship which they sustained for 10 years. The Dublin International Piano Competition is now supported by a private benefactor.

Since its formation the Dublin Competition’s reputation has grown in stature, and now ranks among the most important piano competitions in the world. It offers a generous prize fund, but perhaps the most important prize is the prestigious list of engagements secured for the winner. These include début concerts in London, New York, Paris and of course Ireland. Previous winners have launched highly successful international careers from this springboard. Chaired by John O’Conor, who is also the Artistic Director, and adjudicated by distinguished members of the music profession from around the world, the Competition attracts an enormous international entry.

The Dublin International Piano Competition is a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions and previous winners currently engaged in successful careers include Philippe Cassard, France (1988); Pavel Nersessian, Russia (1991); Davide Franceschetti, Italy (1994); Max Levinson, USA (1997); Alexei Nabioulin, Russia (2000), Antti Siirala, Finland (2003) and Romain Descharmes, France (2006). Alexej Gorlatch from the Ukraine, winner in 2009, joins this elite group who fly the flag for Ireland’s premier music competition around the world.

The 2012 Dublin International Competition will be held on the 4th – 15th May, 2012.
