In collaboration with International Piano magazine, the Festival is launching a brand-new composition competition,
    encouraging applicants of any age to send in a short 2-3 minute work for four hands (one or two pianos).

    The winning piece will be performed in the Festival’s Two-Piano Gala on 10 October 2020 at Kings Place, London.

    International Piano will publish the score of the winning piece, alongside an interview with the composer, in the
    October issue of the magazine.


    The jury for the competition is led by award-winning composer Elena Langer, joined
    by London Piano Festival Artistic Directors Charles Owen and Katya Apekisheva, Kings Place Artistic Director Helen
    and International Piano editor Owen Mortimer.


    Competition entries can be submitted via email to

    Dulwich Road, Brixton, London SE24 OPB.
