MANAGEMENT, CONCERT TOURS AND PROFESSIONAL RECORDING
Following the Competition and for two years after the Prizes have been awarded, the Competition organization will offer support to laureates, to help them develop their careers as professional pianists.
To help laureates develop a solid, long-term career, the Competition organization provides artistic guidance as well as guidance for career management and image.
Over these two years, the Competition organization offers laureates diverse career development opportunities:
● laureates are introduced to composers and other important figures in the world of contemporary music to enhance their artistic development.
● recording in a – professional – studio on an original project (for the First Prize of the Competition)
● national and international concert tours
● engagements for concerts, conferences and other piano events in partnership with prestigious music institutions in France and internationally — thanks in particular to partners such as Steinway & Sons and their Steinway Prizewinner Concerts Network programme.
