Dear contestants of the Sixth NTD International Piano Competition (NIPC):

Thank you very much for your consistent understanding, patience, and support!

It is our great pleasure to announce that the Sixth edition of NIPC will resume this October in New York City, USA.

The central aim of NIPC is to enable our future generations to inherit the legacy of classical piano music holistically and to integrate its spiritual power with the utmost technical skills. The true spirit of the piano competition is a meeting of like minds, which would enrich the musical understandings and experiences of the contestants. This would best be achieved in the context of exchange and interaction under one roof. In that case, pianists would deliver the finest music to the audiences.

Although our competition has been delayed for nearly a year due to the various hurdles imposed by the pandemic, we never lose hope that we will meet and celebrate in New York in due course, because we are connected by the same passion for classical piano music.

As the organizer of NIPC, we are excited to welcome each of you in person this fall. Let’s join forces and continue the legacy of classical piano. What’s more, we can inspire the world with these masterpieces, and bring back hope, courage, and faith!

About Us


The New Tang Dynasty Television (NTD Television) “International Piano Competition” is one in a series of international cultural and arts events sponsored by NTD Television. The mission of this competition is to promote traditional arts of pure authenticity, pure goodness, and pure beauty, bring back the glory of piano masterpieces from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods.

The competition’s commitment to artistic excellence is a means to allow the 250-year legacy of piano literature to continue to flourish. We believe this repertoire is a treasure of mankind and should be passed onto future generations to come.


The competition was established in 2008 by NTD Television. As the largest Chinese media group outside of the mainland, we disseminate traditional culture to audiences around the world through television, newspapers, magazines, websites and social media. Semifinal and Final of the competition will be broadcasted through live stream video on the Internet. The recording of the competition will be edited into a TV special to broadcast on NTD’s TV network.

Commissioned Composition

It is our great honor to be permitted to select and rearrange one of the vocal pieces composed by world-renowned composer and Artistic Director of Shen Yun Performing Arts – D. F. – to be this competition’s Commissioned Composition. Pianists who make it to the semi-finals will have the opportunity to perform this specially commissioned composition. A “Best Rendition Award of the Commissioned Composition” is established for the competition.

Inheriting the characteristics of the Music of Shen Yun, the Commissioned Composition features the perfect harmony of Eastern and Western classical music. The Western piano serves as a foundation, accentuating the distinct sound of Chinese classical music. The bedrock of soul-stirring melodies from the ancient Middle Kingdom is fully brought to life by a Western instrument, the piano. The perfect harmony of Eastern and Western classical music is what makes the Commissioned Composition unique.
