Issue #1: Second Round Kicks Off!

“We’re looking for somebody who will make us sit up and listen with our hearts, because we want people who bring poetry and who are poets - who will show us our soul, and will take us on a journey.”- Adam Gatehouse, Artistic Director of the Leeds International Piano Competition

After much anticipation, the second round of the 20th Leeds International Piano Competition begins today in Great Hall, University of Leeds. Hailing from all over the world, from Russia, Korea, China, and the UK to Morocco, Kazakhstan, Iran, and Peru, twenty-two competitors from seventeen countries will present to audience members and the jury what they have tirelessly prepared this past year. Medici.tv caught up with Fiona Sinclair, Chief Executive, and Adam Gatehouse, Artistic Director,  about the challenges of holding the first round online and how excited now that we’re finally here in person!
