Once the prizes have been awarded, the Competition supports its prize-winners as they develop their careers as professional pianists. Among the activities, a special place is reserved for the recording of a CD on an original project that opens the Tour of the Centre-Val de Loire Region.
The aim of the International piano competition of Orléans is to disseminate and make known the entire repertoire of piano works of the 20th and 21st centuries, which naturally leads to multiple actions in prolongation of the competition, in particular with students from the Music Schools of the Centre-Val de Loire Region where the competition takes place.
Following this goal, an event has therefore been created: one or two winners of the competition give a concert on a specific theme then listen and make the students of musical education institutions work during master classes.
Every effort is made to ensure an appreciable result enabling fruitful exchanges between young artists, students and the public.
Every two years, about ten cities are solicited (meetings with the music schools directors, presentation of scores and suggestion of programs) for a concert tour to which are added master classes.
