Description: The sixteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition takes place in June 2022, and the winner will perform a breathtaking concert on the Lied Center stage. Widely considered one of the preeminent international music contests, the quadrennial Van Cliburn International Piano Competition exists to share excellent classical music with the largest international audience possible and to launch the careers of its winners. Building on a rich tradition that began with its 1962 origins in honor of Van Cliburn and his vision for using music to serve audiences and break down boundaries, the Cliburn seeks with each edition to achieve the highest artistic standards, while utilizing contemporary tools to advance its reach. The world’s top 18- to 30-year-old pianists compete for gold in front of a live audience in Fort Worth, Texas, as well as a global online viewership of over 10 million. In its 60-year history, the Cliburn has identified and ushered a host of exceptional artists to international prominence, including Olga Kern, Vadym Kholodenko, Radu Lupu, Jon Nakamatsu, Beatrice Rana, Yekwon Sunwoo, Joyce Yang and Haochen Zhang. They have garnered Grammy nominations, Diapason d’Or de l’Année Awards, Gramaphone Awards and Avery Fisher Career Grants as well as recognition from BBC music and radio, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, International Piano Magazine and the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund.
