final choice of the Winners to take part
in the Carnegie Hall recitals will
be based solely on the recordings submitted. Winners will be notified no
later than May 1, 2013.
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.
