Fryderyck Chopin Piano Competition
2-23 October 2020, Warsaw, Poland

This Competition was born of the need to sustain familiarity with the music of Fryderyk Chopin and to perpetuate the piano playing tradition that was characteristic of his style. Today, when the Competition is organised on such a huge scale, attracting the greatest pianistic talent internationally, and Chopin's music is enjoying the kind of popularity and recognition afforded virtually no other composer, it is hard to believe that after the First World War, just ninety years or so ago, Chopin's works were being played increasingly rarely and were disappearing from music school curricula.
