It is the mission of the NTD International Piano Competition to, together with world renowned pianists, 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. The organizer’s unique position as a media company allows the competition to further its mission, broadcasting top tier classical music making to audiences around the world.
