FORTISSIMO AT 50

Forte@40 was a successful fundraising concert held last November 18, 2012. It celebrated PTGP’s 40th Founding Anniversary by featuring pianists ages 8 to 80 playing on 40 pianos at the CCP Main Theater.

Next year, PTGPFI will celebrate its 50th anniversary. We are proud to launch our anniversary concert: FORTISSIMO AT 50!

PTGPFI is pushing its limits as the concert will feature a whopping 50 pianos at its grand stage! New pieces will be arranged and debuted at this historic concert.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for pianists of all ages to learn about piano pedagogy and ensemble playing. It is also an opportunity to collaborate with fellow pianists and teachers. Our participants from the forte@40 concert surely enjoyed meeting new people. This is your chance to meet new friends!

We are now accepting applications for Fortissimo at 50! Kindly register on the links below:

We look forward to seeing and collaborating with you very soon!

BEETHOVEN AND BEYOND 2021

Ludwig van Beethoven, a German composer and a pianist, a crucial figure in the transition between the classical and romantic era in classical music, remains as one of the most recognized and influential musicians of this period, and is considered to be one of the greatest composers of all times.

In 2020, we celebrated the 250th Birth Anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven. And to commemorate this special occasion, PTGP had planned a series of piano festival and a competition ‘Beethoven and Beyond.’ After its postponement last year due to Covid-19 crisis, we are happy to be hosting these two major events online this year, 2021!

‘Beethoven and Beyond 2021’

Piano Festival

Piano Festival featuring works of Beethoven alongside standard piano literature will be aired on March 7, 14, and 21. Auditions for the Festival will be done thru video submissions. The deadline is on February 15, 2021. Students who have auditioned last year with a participation fee, need not pay for this year’s festival.

Piano Competition

Piano Competition will be held in April, featuring works of Beethoven.  Please refer to competition guidelines for repertoire requirements per category.  Deadlines of video submissions are on or before April 10, 2021. The finalists will be announced by April 17, 2021.
