The Edvard Grieg Museum Troldhaugen will host the 13th International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition from September 1-8, 2012 in Bergen.
The Competition, previously known as Concours Grieg, had been held to much acclaim in Oslo since 2004. Given the pristine setting and world-class concert facilities at Grieg’s home and concert hall in Bergen, the decision was made to move the Competition to the heart of Grieg’s inspiration – his beloved Troldhaugen. The concert will from now on take place every second year in Bergen. Pianists from all over the world between the ages of 17 and 32 are invited to apply, of which the top 30 pianists will be chosen to compete in four rounds of competition in front of audiences and an esteemed international jury. The Competition is being held in collaboration with many of the largest cultural institutions in Western Norway, among those the world-renowned Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra who will accompany the finalists to determine the winner of the 30.000 euro prize.
