Arthur Rubinstein Virtual PianoFest

Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition – Virtual PianoFest

COMPETITION POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

Following the spread of the Corona virus and the emergency guidelines to curb the epidemic in Israel and around the world, the management of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition has decided to postpone the 16th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, which was to take place on 5 – 21 May 2020.

COMPETITION REPLACED WITH “Arthur Rubinstein Virtual PianoFest


The Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition came in­to being in 1973, at the initiative of Jan Jacob Bistritzky, a close friend of Arthur Rubinstein, who was honored to give his name to the Competition.

Conceived in the spirit of this legend­ary pianist, the Competition is com­mitted to attaining standards of the highest order and is a valid interna­tional forum for presenting talented, aspiring young pianists and fostering their artistic careers.

The Competition first took place in 1974 and is held every three years.

Rubinstein himself attend­ed the first two competitions, when the winners were Emanuel Ax and Gerhard Oppitz, renowned pi­anists today.

Since 2003, the Artistic Director of the Competition is Israeli Pianist Idith Zvi.

The past 40+ years of its history have continuously produced pianists who went on to international acclaim: Gerhard Oppitz, Angela Cheng, Alexander Korsantia, Kirill Gerstein, Alexander Gavrylyuk; Igor Levit, Khatia Buniatishvili, Boris Giltburg, Daniil Trifonov and others.
