The Dulwich Music Festival is now in its fifth year. It is an annual event that takes place several times during the year to provide performance and feedback opportunities for pianists, harpsichordists and fortepianists. The piano competition is well established and fully booked months in advance. We recommend early booking. Some of the June classes are already fully booked. Repertoire has been carefully chosen to allow complete beginners the chance to gain their first experience of performing to a friendly and welcoming audience. We seek out innovative repertoire by contemporary composers who also adjudicate the classes. In addition to the contemporary repertoire, we also have graded classes and recital and exhibition classes.
I had a wonderful time last year adjudicating at this very popular and successful festival; it was a real pleasure to hear so many young performers of such a high standard. I am therefore delighted to have been asked once again to adjudicate various classes in the 2016 Piano Competition in June and very much look forward to hearing all the performers. This is a very popular competition so early booking is advised.
The events currently listed for 2016 are:
6th March The Clementi House Piano Competition offering performance opportunities at the London home of composer Muzio Clementi. As part of this event there will be an opportunity to hear recitals by leading harpsichordists and fortepianists.
11th June The Dulwich Piano Competition with classes ranging from beginner to advanced and including classes for adult amateur pianists.
