I participated at Pianale in 2014. It was a very well organized course, with much attention and thought to details, and warm reception.
Pianale has a hard schedule of lessons, concerts and the competition, but having lessons with many leading pianists in a short period is very valuable.
The participation at Pianale is an asset and if you are among the finalists, you may even get the chance to give recitals somewhere in Europe.
Participating at Pianale will definitely improve you artistically.
I very much appreciated the competence of the six professors with whom I had a lesson. I would like to express my gratitude to all who have made my stay so much worth-while.
