The Fryderyk Chopin Institute, in collaboration with the Artists’ House in Radziejowice, is organizing the 6th International Master Course for Young Pianists, which will take place from 10 to 22 August 2018 at the Palace in Radziejowice. The course is dedicated to pupils, students and graduates of music schools and conservatories, as well as to all pianists interested in performance on period instruments, especially those who plan to take part in the 1st International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments.

This year, for the first time, the Course will be divided into two separate sessions: period (10–15 August) and modern (15–22 August). As has now become a tradition, the young pianists will have the opportunity to work under the tutelage of eminent artists and recognized pedagogical authorities. The master classes during the session on period pianos will be led by Kristian Bezuidenhout, Nikolai Demidenko, Alexei Lubimov and Tobias Koch. The session on modern pianos will be led by Nikolai Demidenko, Akiko Ebi and Krzysztof Jabłoński. It is also possible to take part in both sessions. As in previous editions, additional meetings, seminars and concerts prepared especially for the pianists will also take place during the Course.

The detailed Course Rules and Regulations are available here. Each of the four master lessons lasts 60 minutes. The full cost of participation in one session (380 Euros) is comprised of a payment for the master lessons (190 Euros) and for room and board at the Palace in Radziejowice (optional, 190 Euros0). The conditions and payments associated with participation in the two sessions of the Course are described in detail in the Course Rules and Regulations.

In the current edition, for the first time, the possibility of passive participation has appeared; it is dedicated to students and graduates of music conservatories, as well as teachers of piano performance at music schools and conservatories. A passive participant is guaranteed the right of admission to all master lessons during a given session. 

We ask all pianists interested in active or passive participation to fill out an electronic application form and send it to the following address: The application form can be downloaded here. The deadline for submission of applications is 31 May 2018.
