The 20th Leeds International Piano Competition starts tomorrow!


The famous international piano competition in Leeds starts tomorrow. Make sure to check the calendar so you don't miss your favourite pianists.


Two of ‘our’ performers are competing this year:

  • Tyler Hay plays at 9:20pm on Thursday 9 September and

  • Alim Beisembayev at 3:40pm on Friday 10 September.

The job of deciding between these pianists is an unenviable one: they are all absolutely wonderful and it will be a joy to listen to them all!

Don't forget that the audience gets a vote in the finals!


The vote will open on 14 September, after the announcement of the 5 finalists. You'll then have have 4 days to vote: the polls will stay open right up until the end of the last final round performance on 18 September.
