Discover new talent in Naarden

The Naarden International Piano Festival was founded at the end of 2018, with the main goal of nourishing young artists and displaying their talents. At the time of the festival, the students will have just graduated and will be about to enter the world of independent music. The musicians are handpicked, and they will personally have the opportunity to meet with extremely experienced Master Pianists, who will offer their advice and guidance.

Additionally, the artists will be preforming in concerts that are attended by Honorary Guests, consisting of representatives of major concert halls, music agencies, and record labels, along with the audience. There will be two parts to the festival: the Master Pianist Concert Series and the Discovery Concert Series.
