Glocal Piano Project

2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenges for arts institutions worldwide. The Busoni Piano Competition has decided not to give in and instead has developed an innovative new way of holding its preliminary stages: By turning this important first lap on the way to the grand finals in 2021 into The Glocal Piano Project, the competition is happening worldwide. Instead of allowing the pressure of the pandemic to reduce the 70-year-old institution’s scope, the “Busoni” is asserting its international identity more decisively than ever by holding a hybrid form of both online and offline auditions at Steinway & Sons dealers all over the globe.

Thanks to the commitment of Steinway & Sons, the 93 candidates had the opportunity to play at or near their country of residence under the same, excellent conditions that only a Steinway & Sons Dealer can provide.
The recordings of the auditions, that will also include a small live audience wherever it is possible,  are available at voting.concorsobusoni.it. Not only were the individual performances judged by the international jury, but also by an online audience that was invited to experience the Glocal Piano Project as one large online piano festival and has given its own, significant vote.

The Glocal Piano Project is made possible thanks to the support of:
