Festival Theme: “Celebrating the Piano”
Entry Deadline • April 7, 2018
Entries must be submitted online by the entry deadline. Please click on the following link to register students:
The theme, “Celebrating the Piano” recognizes and celebrates the vast potential and evolvement of the piano in conveying unlimited styles and moods of music since its early development by Bartolomeo Cristofore in the seventeenth century: touch, tone, texture, etc. Each composer – from Baroque to Contemporary – clearly contributed to this development via the vast ever-growing cumulative classical/popular repertoire: Examples: Chopin – poetry; Liszt – 88 key usage; Debussy – Impressionism, etc. Teachers may wish to consider how specific student pieces best illustrate this potential.
