The most gifted young pianists compete in a program that features Chopin, Szymanowski, and many other talented composers of various eras and styles.
The Kosciuszko Foundation's Chopin Piano Competition was established in 1949, in honor of the hundredth anniversary of the death of Frederic Chopin.
The inauguration of the Kosciuszko Foundation's Chopin Piano Competition took place at the Kosciuszko Foundation House in New York City, with Witold Malcuzynski as a guest artist, and Abram Chasins, composer and music director of the New York Times Radio Station, presiding.
Over the years, many outstanding musicians have been associated with the competition including Van Cliburn, Ian Hobson, and Murray Perahia. Today, the Kosciuszko Foundation's Chopin Competition continues to encourage gifted young pianists to further their studies and to perform the works of Polish composers.
This year's competition features Jury Chair Roy F. Eaton, the winner of the inaugural competition and a top prize of $5,000.
