Building Bridges – András Schiff presents young pianists

Even after graduating from a prestigious conservatory, it is not easy for young musicians to position themselves successfully in the international music market – because regardless of talent and technical excellence, they often lack performance practice and access to important networks. This is where Sir András Schiff’s mentoring programme Building Bridges comes in, with which he has been providing targeted and sustainable support for young pianists since 2014.

Each season, András Schiff, who himself built his international acclaimed career without the springboard of a major competition win, selects three gifted pianists with unique musical personalities and, in cooperation with conc.arts berlin, arranges recitals for them at concert venues and festivals throughout Europe. As honorary artistic director, András Schiff selects the participants and develops the repertoire together with them. Implementation and organisation are carried out by conc.arts berlin gUG.

With Building Bridges, Sir András Schiff has established a unique model for the sustainable promotion of young musicians, enabling young pianists to build their own bridges to the professional music world..
