Chopin Society Announces 18th International Fryderyk Chopin Competition in Warsaw

The 18th International Fryderyk Chopin Competition in Warsaw—one of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world and the only music competition devoted to one composer—starts on October 2, 2021. Its history goes back to 1927. Since then, every five years, a jury composed of renowned pianists choose winners of top prizes, who eventually enter the realm of the highest piano virtuosity. In our concert series, the Chopin Society of Atlanta has hosted many of them: Ingrid Fliter, Mark Laforet, Kevin Kenner (twice), Alberto Nosè, Sa Chen, Alexander Kobrin, Yulianna Avdeeva, Dina Yoffe, Margarita Shevchenko, Rafał Blechacz, Eric Lu, and Ewa Pobłocka.
