final choice of the Winners to take part
in the Carnegie Hall recitals will
be based solely on the recordings submitted.
If you send a cassette, CD or DVD, please include
the signed statement that
the compositions are performed from memory.
Winners will be notified no
later than May 3, 2011.
Repertoire for the Competition may be solo or piano duo/four hand (one piano) literature chosen from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, and/or Contemporary eras. Applicants may enroll in either the Solo or Ensemble (duo/four hand) classifications, or BOTH!
Applicants competing in both the Solo and Ensemble classifications must submit a separate enrollment for each category and pay the separate enrollment fee for each application. Applicants may offer a single work or a variety of shorter pieces. A movement of a sonata is also acceptable.
In the Ensemble (duo/four
hands) category, the age of the older contestant
determines the classification, and arrangements
are acceptable. The music for the
Ensemble (duo/four hands) category does
not have to be memorized.
