7th Top of the World International Piano Competition
In 1999, the founder of the Gina Bachauer competition in USA – Paul Pollei – came up with the idea of starting a piano competition in what he saw as the most exotic place on Earth – Tromsø!
Top of the World is developing fast. In 2013, one achieved the goal of painting the whole town of Tromsø in ”classical colours”, by having mini concerts around town during the week of the competition – in town squares, churches, hospitals, art clubs and other places one wouldn’t normally stumble across such culture.
Top of the World International Piano Competition has already achieved great recognition abroad, and is invited to join Steinway Prize Winner Concerts Network. The Top of the World is member of Alink-Argerich Organisation and World Federation of International Music Competitions.
Now, we are very much looking forward to the following Top of the World Competitions. They will be conducted with the same passion and precision as before.
Sindre Myrbostad is the new Artistic Director for future competitions.
