Non-profit association - we promote young talent

Welcome to the "International Piano Competition for Young Pianists Kronberg"!

Every two years, the non-profit association "International Piano Competition Taunus e. V." invites young pianists of all nations between the ages of 6 and 19 to the highly acclaimed, in its acoustics and aesthetics unique Casals Forum Kronberg, unique in its acoustics and aesthetics.

There, above-average prize money, a top-class jury and valuable special prizes that focus on musical and pianistic development (master classes, concerts, etc.) await the competition participants. Seven age groups of two years each ensure the greatest possible support, in which even the very young artists are not neglected.

The registered participants qualify for the competition through a digital preliminary round via video selection. In 2023, 62 young pianists were admitted from 291 registrations from 33 nations.

We are delighted that Minister President Boris Rhein will be the patron of the 2nd edition of our competition in 2025.

What makes the Kronberg International Piano Competition for Children and Young People so special?

Since its first edition in 2023, the competition has been characterized by high quality, professionalism, excellent organization and personal atmosphere.

From the beginning, our piano competition has been a member of the Alink-Argerich Foundation.

Excellent grand pianos from the Bechstein company, the prize winners' concert in the large chamber music hall, the attentive and cordial support make the three days of the competition an experience. 

An exciting supporting program offers the opportunity for exchange and interaction.

With the competition our association promotes talented young pianists, special talents as well as the level and quality of musical and pianistic education.

From March 21-23, 2025, Kronberg am Taunus will once again become the center of piano music and a meeting place for piano-loving children and young people.

Music connects people of all cultures - with the internationality of our competition, we are committed to art, culture and lively exchange across all borders!

"The power of music enables a unifying mission that no other language is prepared to achieve on this scale. My small part in this is my ten fingers, my head, my heart and the black and white keys."

Rudolf Buchbinder

We are looking forward to the second edition of our competition on March 21-23, 2025 and especially to you, dear pianists!

We wish you every success!
