The International Cochran Piano Competition was created in 2014 as the first entirely online piano competition in the world and was inspired by the music of Julian Cochran – Australian composer.
So far, four editions have taken place, in which participated 500 pianists from all over the world. Its unique formula allows participants to submit recordings of their performances digitally, with no traveling required.
The repertoire has to consist of Julian Cochran’s music. The performances are evaluated by the Jury consisting of prominent, award-winning musicians who do not communicate between one another – so far, these have included Yejin Gil, Stuart Isacoff, Roberto Prosseda, Jacob Shaw, Gil Sullivan, Krzysztof Jabłoński, and Kevin Kenner. Moreover, not only do they assign scores, but they also provide written feedback for every participant, as one of the core assumptions of the Competition is to provide the contestants with an opportunity to develop. Each participant is also offered a Skype conversation with the Jury member of their choice. As the Competition is supposed to be accessible for everyone, there is no upper age limit.
They expect the world´s best current teachers and horn players, who are ready to pay close attention to students for three days in November ( 12th to 15th November, 2020) in the cozy environment of the Quinta da Pedra Grande Hotel.
They are happy to announce the names of their special guests, professors of the course.
