'Promoting Chopin Excellence in Australia and the World'
About the AICPC
The Australian International Chopin Piano Competition (AICPC) was established in 2010 as a legacy of the Chopin Bicentennial Celebrations. The competition encourages performers to explore the 19th century tradition of romantic playing, reflecting the lyrical and poetic interpretive aesthetics of Chopin’s own time.
A unique element of the Australian competition is the adjunct composition competition. This encourages young Australian composers to engage with the music of Chopin and create a wholly original, musically rich, and pianistically challenging work for piano. The winning piece is included as mandatory repertoire in the adult piano competition.
The Competition is an initiative of the Friends of Chopin Australia.
