International Master Course for Pianists - organised by Ferenz Liszt Society in Poland
Since 1993, we have organised international master piano courses in Wroclaw - already renown in professional music circles. Almost 570 pianists from 29 countries took part in them. Professors were the most outstanding artists-pedagogues: Halina Czerny-Stefanska (Krakow, Poland), Andrzej Jasinski (Katowice, Poland), István Lantos (Budapest, Hungary), Lee Kum Sing (Vancouver, Canada), Victor Merzhanov (Moscow, Russia), Alexei Orlovetsky (St Petersburg, Russia). Apart from hundreds of interesting open classes, there were 83 concerts of the course participants in various venues (e.g. Philharmonic Hall in Wroclaw, Silesian Castle in Brzeg, Chopin Manor House in Duszniki Zdroj). Some of our participants have achieved considerable artistic successes. This form of education, which has recently become very popular, seems to have a great or even essential influence on the development of artistic personality of young musicians.
Every year some of our course participants achieve significant artistic successes. For example, following the last edition (August 2009) Grzegorz Niemczuk won the 43rd Nationwide F. Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw and was awarded with a prize for best performance of R. Schumann's piece, became a laureate of the Festivalias of the Young at the 43rd Festival of Polish Piano-Playing in Słupsk and a semi-finalist at the Southern Highlands Piano Competition in Bowral (Australia). Successfully performed in Belgium, Finland, France (standing ovations) and in Poland. Marta Czech, Karolina Czech and Tamara Niekludow won, in their age categories, the Polish-German Piano Tournament in Zgorzelec-Görlitz. Moreover, Marta Czech, as the only competitor, acquired maximum score and won a prize for best performance of a classical piece, and Tamara Niekludow - analogous prize for F. Chopin's piece. Marta Czech also won 2nd prize at the International Mozart Piano Competition ''Amadeus'' in Brno. Marta Czech won the 1st prize and special prizes for best performance of F.
