The Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition is pleased to announce the new Finals Concert date for the 2021 Competition and welcomes new patron Trevor St Baker AO.
Tickets are now on sale for the new date of Thursday 24 February 2022.
Previously scheduled in July 2021, the Finals were postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
This year we have the inaugural Young Lev Piano Competition for pianists age up to 16; this runs concurrently with the original competition for pianists age 16 – 30. With total prizes exceeding $60,000 and a broad age range, the competitions are a major piano event in Australia.
The Finals Concert features six pianists performing in the fine acoustic of the magnificent Conservatorium Theatre, Griffith University, with the acclaimed Queensland Symphony Orchestra and international conductor Johannes Fritzsch. Three finalists of the Young Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition will each perform a concerto movement and three finalists of the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition will each perform a complete concerto. The Finals Concert will also be livestreamed and judged online by a distinguished international Jury: Barry Douglas (Ireland), Irina Plotnikova (Russia), and Sergio Tiempo (Argentina).
The Finals follow Recitals performances presented in prestigious Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane venues over a four week period which will be judged by eminent jurors Michael Endres (Germany/NZ), Daniel Herscovitch (Australia); Konstantin Shamray (Russia/Australia). The Recitals and Finals will be available to our national and international audience via livestream through the Lev Vlassenko website.
The Competition acknowledges and thanks our Principal Sponsor Yamaha Music Australia, Official Partner Griffith University, Trevor and Judith St Baker Family Foundation, St Baker Energy Innovation Fund, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and all our valued Donors and Supporters.
