About the AICPC

Welcome to the Australian International Chopin Piano Competition. Established in 2011, it is a triennial partnership between The Australian National University and its School of Music, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Australia, and the Friends of Chopin Australia. Like Australia, our competition covers a large and varied landscape; very much a traditional Chopin piano competition in repertoire and standards, we also seek to return to the 19th century ideals of interpretation and music making. Composition is also at the heart of our competition, bringing young pianists and composers together through our composition competition, which seeks a wholly new, original, and musically challenging work, based on a nominated theme of Chopin's.

 

Located in Canberra, the nation’s capital, we seek to bring the best of the world to Australia and the best of Australia to the world in celebration of this much cherished composer.
