International Paderewski Piano Competition

 After the success of Chopin International Piano Competition in Hartford, CT, we decided to create another piano competition, this time dedicated to the person of Ignacy Jan Paderewski.  The competition will take place at  gorgeous piano gallery Shawn's Piano in West Hartford, CT on October 7-9, 2016. Maestro   Paderewski was not  only a wonderful pianist but also  Polish-American patriot, prime minister of Poland and privately great friend of  US President Woodrow Wilson. Thanks to his political engagement, Poland resuscitated its lost independence after World War I. He belonged to the world's most eminent pianists. His arrivals  after world concert tours to Paso Robles, CA, where he resided were real festivities with all city inhibitants walking in procession to meet him.


I believe, International Paderewski Piano Competition  will gain your attention. The most interesting pianists will   be discovered and recommended to our international partners around the world. I hope to see you this November.


Good luck.


Dr. Krystian Tkaczewski

Artistic Director
