Top of the World International Piano Competition 2022
The Top of the World International Piano Competition came into being in 1999, when 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!
Since then, the competition has grown and, in 2013, painted 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.
The Top of the World International Piano Competition has already achieved great recognition abroad, and is invited to join Steinway Prize Winner Concerts Network.
Sindre Myrbostad is the new Artistic Director for future competitions.
The application site opens in September 2021.
